Report Details

Sun and light breeze made for a good opportunity to get out on the beach. Three wood pallets, including a red "PECO" were in the high zone, as well as a large amount of styrofoam, small pieces of plastic, rope, Asian plastic bottles, and numerous bottle caps. Most of this debris was accumulated near the outlet of Wade Creek. The sand continues to wash out and bare more of the rock/lava formations.When I was out for a non-survey walk on December 21, I noted a major boulder slide about a third of a mile south of Wade Creek. I went back on December 23 to take pictures.

The beach fire close to vegetation, and somewhat close to access point was the main unusual concern to report, otherwise just the usual concern of trash.
