Humans seem to have a natural propensity to challenge Mother Nature, to stare her down as she hurls wind, water, fire and even rocks our way. Here, a motorist takes chances crossing a stretch of road as a landslide is underway on a dirt road between Govindghat and Rishikesh in India.
If you watch closely, you'll see a few rocks hit the car. The video was uploaded to YouTube June 18, 2011. We ran across it via Dave Petley's AGU "landslide" blog.
