A series of landslides coupled with washouts blocked a woods road leading to Little Grand Lake. The event followed heavy rainfall on June 8/95. The Department of Wildlife had a rental vehicle trapped on the other side of slide; suggested methods of removal included flying the machine out or reconstructing the road. The vehicle was eventually dismantled and flown out by helicopter.
