Haystack Rock

Fun with Effects

Haystack Rock is located on the Oregon Coast about 1.5 miles south of downtown Cannon Beach and about 80 miles west of Portland OR.  It was the first stop on our Oregon Coast road trip.  After our adventures in Portland Erica and I made the 80 mile trip to Cannon Beach and arrived at Haystack Rock in the early afternoon.

About Haystack Rock (thank you wikipedia):
Haystack Rock is a 235-foot sea-stack in Cannon Beach, OR. It is the third-tallest such "intertidal" (meaning it can be reached by land) structure in the world. A popular tourist destination, the monolithic rock is adjacent to the beach and accessible by foot at low tide. The Haystack Rock tide pools are home to many intertidal animals, including starfish, sea anemone, crabs, chitons, limpets, and sea slugs.
