High tides put wrack up into Juncus and Borrichia

The high "King" tides that we had recently allowed wrack to move up quite high into the marsh. At marsh landing in January 2022 I saw packets of wrack in Juncus and in Borrichia stands--something that rarely happens. Although most wrack ends up at the "normal" high tide mark, occasional events like these can also push it into very high habitats.
