Mile 174 Report
November 18, 2012
The Siuslaw News reports that a 28-foot male humpback whale has washed ashore on this mile.
The Siuslaw News reports that a 28-foot male humpback whale has washed ashore on this mile. It was spotted last weekend by a Coast Guard flyover. Apparently the whale died after something bit its tongue off and it was unable to eat. The removal plan is to "let nature take its course." Beach rangers ask that everyone be respectful of the whale's remains.
All Mile 174 Reports
Mile 174 is largely deserted, mainly because it is easily accessible only from the northern part of Mile 175.
Footprints leading quite a ways into the snowy plover restricted area.
