A little bit of the Bookcliffs fell off Friday morning.

If you saw a cloud of dust go up north of the airport around 9:30 a.m., it wasn’t your imagination.

People in the area who saw the rockslide called us about it.

They say it wasn’t a big slide but that there was a lot of dust in the air for a few minutes.

There are no reports of damage because of the rockfall.

It happened on BLM land north of the airport and west of Mount Garfield.
