Summary:

Dead cow elk.  It appeared to have broken a hind leg.  A mystery as to how it ended up on the beach. It did not appear to have been in the water very long.    It was a beautiful cold winter day.  The beach has alot less driftwood accumulated then in previous years.  We got just a few #'s of trash.  My guess is that I am not the only one continually picking up trash.  I am on this section of beach on average 4-5 times a week. It is nice to see an increse of people using the jetty and mile 290.
