Located near Cannon Beach on the North coast of Oregon, Haystack Rock is a unique monolith that attracts wildlife and tourists alike. Towering 235 feet over the beach, the Rock is home to nesting seabirds in the summer and marine invertebrates all year long. It is one of the largest "sea stacks" on America's Pacific coast, and is the third largest monolith in the world.

I love visiting here, because it seems like paradise, but even paradise has it's hidden secrets.
When the tide is low enough, you can walk into the cave under Haystack Rock and discover the beautiful ecosystem around it.

  1. I love these photos of Haystack Rock. They remind me of the Morro rock at Morro Bay, Calif. Good compositions... Also checked out your pastels, they are lovely.

  6. My mom's ashes were scattered near Haystack rock in 2003. I consider it the closest thing she'll ever have to a "headstone." These are absolutely lovely. I spent a week there 2 summers in a row 2002, 2003, and I miss it with my whole being.
