Mile 200 Report
May 26, 2013
Park Ranger was driving on the beach.
Park Ranger was driving on the beach. A dead gray whale calf that was reportedly killed by a pod of orcas two weeks before had washed up on the beach. Ranger was going to bury the body. It was missing its head. Mile 200 is very debris free here this past week. Only one old board was on the beach and the ranger picked it up. Will keep our eyes open for any kind of tsunami debris.
