This mile is typical of the Oregon Dunes beaches - grassed foredune, vegetated deflation plain, and large parabolic dunes inland.

The weather was crazy; as we hiked across the two mile expanse of dunes to access our mile, the weather went from somewhat sunny to hail and wind, to rain and back to sunny.
