OSO, WA (KCPQ/CNN) - A community walk was held on Saturday to remember those killed by a deadly landslide in Washington State.

Dozens of people attended a prayer and moment of silence at the Oso Memorial Tree.

After the prayer, the community walked along State Highway 530, which also reopened on Saturday.

Walkers say they can still see signs of the devastation around them.

"It's still amazing, there were houses here and now there's none," said Tim Jakobs.

"Even as we're all walking, what people don't get to see is the real tragedy behind this berm, what Mother Nature is really capable of doing with no notice," said Eric Spregue.

The March mudslide killed 43 people.
