The spring whale migration is underway and drawing visitors to the coast. State Park Ranger Linda Taylor say you can see “Gray Whales”; but be sure to bring binoculars, as they are out quiet a ways. Taylor is at the Whale Watching Center at Depoe Bay, but there are 24 locations along the coast where visitors can meet volunteers who speak whale watching. For more go to: www.whalespoken.org.
