Composite Landslides

Terragen rendering of the Deer Creek Landslide, a composite landslide, between
mile 136.3 and 139.5 on the Colorado River in the Grand Canyon.  This image was derived
from a 10 m digital elevation model (DEM) and wrapped with a rock texture.  The
slide is visible as the bench on the left side of the canyon floor.
