Mile 192 Reports (11)
February 21, 2010 - mcrobbinsDespite warmer than normal temperatures since December, the main sign of the coming change of seasons was the widespread growth of bright green algae around pools and runoff areas on all the rocky shelves we explored. We saw only one or two wildflowers along the bluffs. There was little new...read more
August 29, 2009 - mcrobbinsThe weekend was mild, but foggy and damp from the recent rain, and mile 192 was deserted except for a couple enjoying a walk on the rocks and a man walking two small dogs. There was quite a bit of seepage from the bluffs in many places, but all creeks...read more
June 15, 2009 - mcrobbinsThe day was sunny and warm, with a light breeze, and only a few other people were out exploring. The tide was low, giving us opportunity to explore the edges of the rocky shore. Much sand has returned to inlets and coves, and there are large areas of sand in...read more
March 13, 2009 - mcrobbinsSpring is not very much in evidence on mile 192, although there are subtle signs of change. There is plentiful new algal growth in and around areas of seepage and runoff in the rocky areas, particularly adjacent to bluffs. Sea thrift is starting to bloom and there are a few...read more
September 21, 2008 - mcrobbinsDespite the mild weekend weather, we did not see much human activity during our walk, except at the beach access directly off Yachats Ocean Road. There was a house being remodelled at the north end of the mile, close to the bluff, but with no impact to the rocky shoreline...read more
June 8, 2008 - mcrobbinsThe day was sunny, though cool and breezy. We saw 10 people walking on the rocks and sand close to public access points. There are many signs of the recent rainfall. Creeks and runoffs are quite full, and there is much seepage from bluffs, and also a lot of moss...read more
March 2, 2008 - mcrobbinsWe observed no significant erosion or changes due to winter weather or human activity, hardly surprising considering the rocky nature of the shoreline on this mile. As happened last year there was some minor slumping of bluff edges at the south end of the mile and at the mouth of...read more
September 18, 2007 - mcrobbinsLike our last mile observation, today was uneventful. There were a few people taking in ocean views at Yachats Ocean Road, but elsewhere there was little evidence of human activity. The rental house at the end of Windy Way in Yachats has been bulldozed and there are now 2 grassy,...read more
June 18, 2007 - mcrobbinsThis mile observation was pretty uneventful and there was little to observe other than normal seasonal changes. We noted no new development along the mile. There was quite a lot of new driftwood at the major inlets, and we saw at least a dozen of the now famous peeler logs...read more
March 11, 2007 - mcrobbinsWe noticed remarkably little evidence of damage or erosion from winter storms. There was minor slumping of some bluff edges at the south end of mile 192, but nothing major or significant. There was a lot of driftwood newly deposited at 2 inlets, but much less marine debris than last...read more
