Report Details

As the oystercatchers and surfbirds foraged among the recently exposed rocks of the receding tide gulls perched here and there. Since the "view restoration" the regrowth consists of many local natives: salal, grasses, coyote brush, huckleberry, etc. The sitka spruce sprouts I've watched are very dense in spots and some are 3' trees now. There's a very prevalent shrub I want to identify for the record. It's interesting to watch the area's comeback. While it wasn't on my mile I did see a dead octopus washed up on Lone Ranch last week but it was quickly becoming crow calamari by the time I passed it again on my return home. Mile 11 visitors show much respect for the area, perhaps in part because much is not very easy to access.
