Report Details

My first trip to mile 156. I had to cross mile 157 to get to "my" mile. Both miles had no significant issues to report. About a four hour round trip walk from the Oregon Dunes Overlook parking lot going west to the beach and then down the beach over mile 157 to get to mile 156. Had to stay on the wet sand because of the snowy plover restrictions.

I had been wondering how I could get all the trash off my mile of beach since it is relatively remote in an area where vehicles are not normally permitted.
