All Mile 160 Reports
My mile was actually inaccessible the ponds on either side of the path had grown together and blocked the path at least a hundred yards before the normal little ford I always have to cross It will be a while before that goes down.
My biggest surprise was the lack of trash, I nearly always bring three or four bags of trash off the beach, but not today.
With the effort of many volunteers we collected four heaping pickup loads of trash, including a hot water heater from a five mile stretch
