Reading the Washington Landscape: Aerials of the Lily Point Landslide 1998 The Google Earth image of the slide from 1998 shows most of the slide is now tree covered nearly 40 years after the bare expanse of the slide area visible in the 1961 image. Point Roberts residences reported hearing a loud noise from Lily Point area and seeing dust rise up above the forest in 1999. The slide is still wooded, but comparison with the 1998 image shows that the slide area has greatly expanded.

Two things slowed this development scheme down: one lack of potable water and two concerns about the landslide.
