Report Images

Status report of last year's landslide. Recovering nicely
This is really the only piece of litter I saw on the beach and it looks like it came in on a tide some time ago
This little section of slide was not there last fall. Only a bit of material has fallen so far
It has not rained recently and I have not seen water here before so I am wondering if something uphill had diverted a nearby stream into a new path.
A little bit of erosion action

Mile 48

Beach southeast of Battle Rock, north of Hubbard Creek

I was astounded by the mass of humans on the beach, so I thought I'd report it. Port Orford made plans for beach cleanups of both the dock beach and the Battle Rock beach for July 5th.

Seems like cheating to call this a winter report, with the weather conditions being so lovely.
