Natural Changes:
In comparing this visit to last I cannot discern any noticeable natural changes.

It was a cloudy cool morning with little human activity. There is little change from last observation witn the exception of a newly established fire ring. The are has seen light human use as evidenced from the trail conditions, obvious recent fire ring use. Dog tracks were only seen near point 4 fire ring. Shore birds were present in small numbers. At the south end of mile 227, 5-10 birds were observed either nesting or in the process of building nests on the cliffs. The area looks healthy and litter was almost nonexistent.
