Coos Head Just Inside the Bar - December Storm (suz)

Selected for Google Maps and Google Earth

Coos Head offers an impressive array of recreational resources, including open sandy beaches, a rugged coastal headland with rocky cliffs over 100 feet high, and an old-growth Sitka spruce forest. Fossil deposits, an historic railroad tunnel, excellent surf fishing, osprey nests and cormorant rookeries add to the area’s recreational/interpretive potential. Coos Head provides outstanding vistas of the Coos Bay Harbor with heavy ship traffic, the primitive beauty of the North Spit, the Pacific Ocean and several islands included in the Oregon Islands National Wildlife Refuge, and an abundance of marine mammals and pelagic birds.

Thank you, Ron, did you go out to experience this storm 2 years ago? It was a bad one for the coast - did a lot of damage - very strong winds - glad it wasn't worse :O)
