Tsunami at Mad River and Little River

The following pictures were taken by the brother of HSU Geology Alumni Nathan Hayler.  All credit goes to Charlie Hayler, the photographer.

Charlie Hayler went to Murray Field where he took his small plane up in the air the morning of March 11, 2011 to view the incoming tsunami which was a result of the Honshu, Japan earthquake.  All time stamps are of Pacific Standard Time.  Photos taken at 8:30 and 8:34 are of the mouth of the Mad River, McKinleyville, California, photos taken at 8:40 AM are further north at the mouth of Little River, near Moonstone Beach, Westhaven California.  The final photo is just north of there.  You can see the parking lot above Luffenholtz Beach and Scenic Drive, south of Trinidad, CA.
