I know why they call it the "Wild Rivers Coast"

The Wild Rivers Coast, southern Oregon, is aptly named stretching from Brookings to Gold Beach to Port Orford and Bandon to Coos Bay. The rivers running through emerald pine, fern, and moss forests meet the rugged coastline in a dynamic fashion. The land between the Elk and Sixes rivers, the Grassy Knob Wilderness, harbors abundant wildlife. During a walkabout on the river bank Brady and Eve came across these bear prints and not the 1st tracks we saw this week. Charlie and Eric saw some very distinctive mountain lion tracks when they were fishing a remote section of the Sixes river. Traveling downriver in a drift boat offers unique opportunities and is one of our most favorite modes of travel.
