Haystack Rock ~ took this of my grand daughter after a good rain. The wind was blowing enough catching her jean jacket, and hair for a dreamy look of exploration and freedom to run.
I also enjoyed reading about Haystack rock info ~ This one is the Haystack Rock at Pacific City, and the other is the Haystack Rock in Cannon Beach, Oregon.
(which only looks larger because it's closer, but the Pacific City one is taller by 100 ft + and is about a mile out).
One story has it that the original name of the rock was Chief Kiawanda Rock, named after the head of the local tribe - actually called the Nestugga (as opposed to Nestucca, which stuck to various area landmarks).
However, to throw another twist into this tale, there is yet a third Haystack Rock – in Coos County in Bandon. — at Cape Kiwanda Pacific City Oregon.
Thanks everyone for your visits and warm comments,
