Report Details

The trail to Cape Cove is so overgrown that the two sides are almost touching. Lots of ferns, horsetail and huge skunk cabbage. New wooden signs with the names of trails or sites to see. Very black sky and occasional showers. The most litter I've ever seen on this mile. Good Fortune Cove had huge plastic containers, not sure how to get down there to pick it up. I was able to hike out most of the litter on the beach at Cape Cove.

I normally don't report on Mile 190 but since I've been a volunteer naturalist/interpretive ranger at Cape Perpetua since 2008, I can report on those things that have been changing over the years.

Mile 190

April 12, 2016

The rock walls appear to have been scoured of small blue mussels and the only sea star noted was in a depression at the top of a rock at the western edge of the beach, which also appeared to be part of a healthy community with anemone.
