The lava flow-landslide link laid bare

This one supports the tenet:

'Intracanyon lava flows, the gifts that keep on giving'.

A garishly colored map that underscores the tight linkage between
landslides and lava flows on the Owyhee. If it is not the margin of
the lava flow that is failing, then it is the canyon wall that the
lava flow forced the river against that is failing (or both).
Certainly a tight coupling in this reach, no?
