Hope everyone had a nice Thanksgiving last week. Houstory has been busy the past few days in Oregon. Saw lots of great B&Bs, and met a ton of very nice folks. Here’s a shot from the beach in Pacific City, Ore.
If it looks familiar, it should: it’s Haystack Rock (see: “The Goonies.”) There are actually two Haystack Rocks along the Oregon coast: one at Cannon Beach and a slightly less famous one at Pacific City.
The “Goonies” scenes were actually shot in front of the Haystack Rock at Cannon Beach, but you get the idea.
According to a BeachConnection.net article, the Pacific City rock is pretty darn big.
“The rock has an estimated height of 340.6 feet (103.8 m) as determined from Lidar data collected by our agency last year,” said Jonathan Allan, Coastal Geomorphologist and Coastal Section Team Leader with Oregon Department of Geology and Mineral Industries, in their Newport office.
Yeah, that’s a big rock. If you’ve never been to the Oregon Coast, make it happen and go.
Goonies never say die.
