Quite amazing and still wondering how these huge rock formations formed. It takes on a whole new look depending on weather and lighting.

The beach was almost flat, and gorgeous. At low tide people can walk out to the rock. When it's higher the waves breaking on at are fascinating to watch.

Beautiful, must see when in Cannon Beach! Great when low tide, to see all the little creatures in the tide pools.

Haystack Rock is a great Oregon site to see. Not only is this a film location from The Goonies (who doesn't love The Goonies?), but is well kept and very clean. Theres also a lot of good food options and hotels in the area. It can be a bit chilly, but beautiful.

The movie is a favorite of my husband and myself. Find the public entrance, which is just northwest of the Cannon Beach Hardware. If you're in the area, it is a must "sea".

Yea you think of The Goonies but beyond that this is a cool place! At low tide you can go all the way out to the biggest rock. Picture taking is a must!

We have walked this beach several times but this morning we were able to walk right up to this amazing rock. All sorts of birds were flapping in the sun. Beautiful.
