The road to La Vega

Photo detail

UW students stand on the edge of the road into La Vega. This is an area that is most likely to be washed out in the future. According to locals, there used to be about nine more feet of material, but now the cliff is next to the road. The volcanic rock weathers easily into sand, making designing protections from washouts a challenge.
