I want to go back

Posted by
Marion (Nanaimo, BC, Canada) on 20 July 2008 in Landscape & Rural and Portfolio.

We rushed through Oregon and now I just want to go back and spend as much time as possible wandering through and along this beautiful coastline. This is Haystack Rock (one of three Haystack Rocks in Oregon) in beautiful Cannon Beach.

Haystack Rock is a 235-foot (72-meter) tall monolith (or sea stack) on the Oregon coast in the northwestern United States, the third-tallest such structure in the world. A popular tourist destination, the rock is adjacent to the beach and accessible by foot during low tide. Haystack Rock tide pools are home to many intertidal animals, including starfish, anemone, crabs, chitons, limpets, and sea slugs. The rock is also a refuge for many sea birds, including terns and puffins.

I'm smiling at your title - how could we possibly tell? <grin> ... This is an amazing shot!

It is an amazing place and we didn't have the time there that you did before heading to WA, Vancouver Is, than back to WA for the ferry to Alaska. We'd love to go back also!
