What's the story on this pic? It looks like there may have been some big rockfall or a slide of some sort from the debris and freshly destroyed trees.

Last Fall, the park was alerted to some potential loose rock around Shirt Tail. I did a couple of inspection/mitigation trips over the winter. This is a picture of about the same spot in December 2012:

Some time in March, and again a few weeks ago, some bigger stuff slid.

It's been a tough winter/spring for freeze/thaw. Big stuff is coming down all over the place. The trail from Rincon to Cadillac is a mess, the Wind Tower trail got smacked, and I think there's more to come. Heads up.
