We walked up the Elwha River from its mouth on the Strait of Juan de Fuca on Sunday about a quarter mile, and collected a full bag of garbage. This section of the river is heavily used by fishermen, surfers, beachcombers, and has homes upstream, and also collects flotsam and jetsam from boats or other marine sources. The river’s two dams will (hopefully) be removed soon, the largest dam removals in North America. This image is the junk we found along it’s shores on Sunday, October 25th from the mouth to about a quarter mile upstream.

I’m beginning a project to document the Elwha River. See my project blog, here.
