Summary
Abstract: The Scenic Drive landslide in La Honda, San Mateo County, California began
movement during the El NiƱo winter of 1997-98. Recurrent motion occurred during
the mild El Nino winter of 2004-2005 and again during the winter of 2005-06.
This report documents the changing geometry and motion of the Scenic Drive
landslide in 2005-2006, and it documents changes and persistent features that
we interpret to reflect underlying structural control of the landslide. We have
also compared the displacement history to near-real time rainfall history at a
continuously recording gauge for the period October 2004-November 2006.

Use Constraints Uses of this digital geologic map and derivative cross section data should not
violate the spatial resolution of the data. Although the digital form of the
data removes the constraint imposed by the scale of a paper map, the detail and
accuracy inherent in map scale are also present in the digital data. The fact
