Wanted to document the driftwood pile-up that's been in place for the past few weeks at Cape Blanco beach. The good news: it blocks auto/ATV ingress on the access road. The bad news: it is a bit hard to climb over it and pass with secure footing through it. Photo...read more

A beautiful day for my first mile summary; a Christmas present, indeed. The beach was, as usual, sparsely populated around sunset/low tide.

Nice day for a walk. Very little wildlife except for some Canadian geese. I was alone but on my return walk two cars driving on the beach passed by. This is legal on this beach and not a concern.read more

I arrived at the parking area which was full. The state park had few campers but there were many people visiting the beach. I asked one person who told me that the salmon fishing season had begun and the elk river (south of the access point on mile 54) was...read more

I arrived just after 9 AM. No cars in the parking lot. I walked the mile and saw no dead bird or litter or evidence of erosion. The beach goes along a steep cliffside and I was surprised that there were not more rocks and boulders having fallen. There was...read more
