January 9, 2022 A New Route

We explored another road on the peninsula between King Slough and the Yaquina river. We came onto an area with a dock out into the slough and what looked like a defunct oyster farm.

A line of ‘grow out bags’ didn’t seem to have any oysters in them!

We continued on a faint path through a primordial fern forest.

The path petered out, so we bushwhacked through the ferns and emerged at Yakona Nature Preserve!
