Mile 106 Report
September 22, 2010
The carcass of a humpback whale washed up here, September 1.
The carcass of a humpback whale washed up here, September 1. According to a 9/3 Coos Bay World article, it "may be the same one that became tangled in commercial crab pot lines off the Washington Coast... in May". The carcass is about 2.8 miles south of the Whisky Run access. (World article incorrectly puts it two miles north.) At this point there's not much to see, or even much to smell -- just a big pile of blubber. It'll be interesting to check here in a year or so to see what's left.
