What is there to say? It's one friggin' huge rock, the height scale of which is truly evident at the crest of the hill on Hemlock at the south end of Cannon Beach when leaving CB core town center.

We certainly would have stayed longer had the weather been more cooperative. Despite the inclement weather I still recommend this stop as part of any Oregon coastal drive.

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.

Watch the goonies movie and then hang at haystack rock. Such an amazing geological feature rising out of the surf.

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.

Bring binoculars because the wildlife you see on the rock is unique. Many nests and standing next to it gives you the sense of its size. Luckily we had a chance to look through a telescope at some close up activity.

This was my first trip to Pacific Ocean. I wanted to see Haystack Rock because I'm a Goonies fan. But I was lucky enough to be able to experience low tide and see the tide pools. Very Cool. I would love to expierience this again one day with my granddaughter. She would be fascinated.
