Thoreau's railroad cut and Japanese landslide

Looking through the horrific images of the destruction in Japan, I came across the photo below on the right. It is an image of a landslide over railroad tracks, which I noticed to be quite similar in composition to the photo on the left of the railroad cut from class the other day.

That's such an clever find. I think it's extremely interesting how relevant this class is to so many current world events. Especially in the aftermath of a tragic disaster like this, I think we will definitely witness an example of just how important the connection is between nature and culture.
