The notation on the back of the photo reads "Drill rig boring test holes." The truck-mounted drill rig is parked near the edge of the landslide on I-80 near Pinole. It is on blocks and actively boring holes through the colalpsed southbound roadway. Extra drills are on the ground near the truck's right rear wheel. There are three men in the photo; one is standing on the rear of the rig, another is standing on the ground near the rig, and one is shoveling material near the bore.
