Not my footprints, some other beachgoer who left before I arrived. I took this shot at Oceanside which is really another hidden gem of a beach along an Oregon coast known for such things. Specifically this shot was taken on Lost Boys Beach which is connected to Oceanside by a tunnel which burrows through the cliff. Apparently it was built with funds raised by the community after a number of people made it around the cliff at extreme low tides and got stranded on the beach.
The beach itself is wonderfully secluded, with only the occasional passerby and at low tide it is quite long, though be careful as there are plenty of places to become stranded should you not pay attention to your tide tables.
