Report Details

Nothing unusual except for the eagle. (Note from CoastWatch volunteer - Before Ed walked his CW Mile, Myself and another CoastWatch volunteer joined him for the NOAA marine debris survey on the north end of CoastWatch Mile 338. We found a handful of items in the 100 meters we surveyed. According to Ed it's notable that on this Mile, 339, there is always more trash accumulated than on Mile 338. Also of note, the bluffs at the end of the trail from Parking Lot B were much more difficult to ascend than the last time I was at this location.)
