Jeff White saw it all happen on the Bookcliffs Sunday morning.

He says he was about two miles from the rock slide area when he heard what sounded like a giant explosion.

He pulled out his camera as the rocks slid down.

No injuries have been reported.

A Colorado State Patrol officer tweeted this photo with the slide captured from his dashcam in the distance.

"There was a rockslide on the Bookcliffs north of I-70 around mm 40," said Megan Terlecky, Information & Communication Manager for the Mesa County Sheriff's Office. "It kicked up a pretty big dust plume, did not affect the highway."
