Concerns

Apparent violations: ATV tracks begin at S end ie Henry's Rock and go N almost to Myers Creek; then return S to exit to 101 at Henry's Rock. No vehicle currently on beach. This is first time I've ever seen tracks on mile 23. Law forbids this..

Small rocks. No litter.

New Development

None west of 101 .one new house being built on Myers creek Road above and parallel to 101. In line with market 183.

Natural Changes

Erosion of vegetated foredune. A great deal of driftwood has been revealed in the OR dunes and much has been deposited in front of those Dunes. The wood runs about a quarter of a mile and then there is very little until the lee side of the offshore monoliths, where it becomes abundant again.
