All Mile 211 Reports
Erosion in the face of the embankment continues, including new large boulder falls.
Relatively large number of people (for mile 211) were enjoying the beach on a sunny, inviting day.
Fairly big crowd for mile 211 on a foggy June 21, most of the people as usual near the beach access at Lost Creek Wayside.
My last previous report was at the end of 2019, but the changes over the last year are typical of Mile 211, including rockslides or boulder falls, rockfields covering parts of the beach, and a new drainage pipe.
More than 10 previously unobserved drainage pipes in places with already existing pipes.
I tried to pick up and carry back to trash collection area all plastic pieces I found larger than 1 square inch, but for every piece I picked up there were at least 100 smaller pieces, a great increase over the amount of plastic just a few years ago.
The contour of the beach has changed again so that there are numerous patches of standing water at the base of the embankment.
