Great place to stop and visit on the Oregon coast

I have been to Haystack rock many times over the years and its always impressive to see. Lots of sea birds and the waves crashing on the rock is a site.

Visiting Haystack Rock has been my delight for decades. The Rock brings tranquility and and represents strength and stability from a distance or up close. The beach near Haystack Rock is among the best for strolling.

This rock formation that comes out of the water is just beautiful. I was there after low tide and if you really want to get close to the rocks you definitely need high boots.
