Jenner, 12 December

A brown Russian River is rushing into the Pacific. From the Highway One overlook at Jenner the river’s waters are turning the normally clear blue Pacific an opaque brown for about a mile out to sea.

That brown water signals the steelhead to swim upstream. The steelhead in turn, attract others.

A Bald Eagle stood for a time on Haystack Rock at the mouth. Here is a closer look:

Many seals swam near the mouth.

More trash than usual is washing downstream. Among the usual alcohol and energy-drink bottles, tennis balls and beach toys, was this inflatable dolphin-shaped pool toy.

  1. Thanks for this posting. And thanks for picking up that dolphin and keeping it out of the gyre!
