ST. GEORGE – Memorial Day often marks the start of summer and outdoor recreation for Utahns. While residents up north dealt with rain and snow, boaters at Lake Powell dealt with a different holiday surprise: a giant rock collapsing off a cliff.

Mila Carter shared a video on Facebook with KSL showing the rockslide as her boat zoomed by.

Carter said the slide happened near the Warm Creek Bay entrance around noon Monday.
