Mile 226 Report
September 21, 2013
Two people were fishing from the rocks at the north end of Mile 226 and had a pickup in the access parking area on Otter Crest Loop there.
Two people were fishing from the rocks at the north end of Mile 226 and had a pickup in the access parking area on Otter Crest Loop there. There were two to three cars at the Lookout parking area and several people were at the observation points. Nothing notable was observed regarding wildlife or with the driftline. No physical changes, manmade or otherwise, were observed. The rockfall deposit in the ocean below the gift shop at the Lookout looks larger than normal, most likely because of a tide level lower than that at which it is normally observed.
Temperature: 62 F. Cloud Cover: Sunny. Wind Velocity: Calm/Light. Wind Direction: SW. Tide Level: 2.1 feet.
Number of people: 2. Fishing: 2. At north end of mile, two people were fishing from the rocks at the only access point for rocks near sea level.
Cars/trucks parking: 1.
Nothing of any significance noted.
All Mile 226 Reports
On a nice, fairly calm and partly cloudy day on the central Oregon coast, there were only a few people driving along Otter Crest Loop and even fewer stopping to enjoy the view from the the Lookout at Otter Crest State Scenic Wayside.
It was a very pleasant sunny day and the ocean was calm, so visibility at and slightly below the surface of the ocean was excellent.
There was nobody observed along the shoreline of mile 226, however there were a number of people driving and stopping along Otter Crest Loop, the roadway that provides excellent overviews of the mile.
There were no human activities noted near the shoreline, which is usual for this mile, but there was activity at the Lookout, where there were a moderate number of people parking and going to the viewpoints and into the Lookout building gift shop.
It was a nice day to be observing the coast, what with the moderate temperature, light wind, and clouds that covered the sky thinly.
Humans were only noted well above the shoreline, specifically at the Lookout, where people parked their vehicles to get out for a few minutes to observe the seascapes.
Human activities were essentially confined to those stopping their vehicles on Otter Crest Loop or at the Lookout to observe the views.
