A YouTube video shows the terminus of the rapidly receding Deming Glacier and the landslide scarp that was the source area of the May 31, 2013 debris flow. That flow  swept down the Middle Fork Nooksack. The video, by MBVRC’s Dave Tucker, is at YouTube: http://youtu.be/_A2E7FUXXaY

A report of the August 7, 2013 cross-country hike to the Deming terminus can be found here on this website. Paste ‘Nooksack debris flow’ (no quotes) into the search box above right to access all the pages reporting on the 2013 debris flows.

The souce of the large May 31 landslide ('debris avalanche') shows clearly on this photo. The view looks up from 100 meters lower, over the rock wall at the north edge of the Deming Glacier.
