Report Details

I accessed Mile 195 from Smelt Sands Wayside and walked, with my dog, from the south to north ends and back. The counts are for the northward walk only, to avoid counting the same persons twice. In spite of fairly heavy fog, there were several beach walkers, perhaps because the Yachats Mushroom Festival has brought in visitors this weekend.This was a fairly typical walk on the mile, with nothing unusual to report.

Walking north oh Wayside Lodge I saw 15 or so dead Black Turnstone. That was the only species of bird that was dead. Lots of plastic bottles that I picked up.

I was just curious if a person who is knowledgeable about geology could explain what I'm seeing in the cliff here?

Walking mile 195 has resumed, now that steps from the 804 trail to the beach, in the middle of the mile, are back up.

It was the best day in quite a while for trail and beach walking--warm and dry.
