Haystack Rock at Cannon Beach

Too bad this one is off limits. Then again, it's nice for Mother Nature to get to keep one. From the spot near where I proposed. (Cannon Beach, Oregon)

Re: Off limits?

There are signs there that say you can't go on it. It's like a monument or preserved place or something. Every day at low tide, there is also a truck that drives out and puts signs and has people there to keep people off parts of the tide pool too. Lots of nesting seabirds too. Looks like it would be a wet, mossy, guano climb too. It's pretty closely watched during times when it could be accessed. Ah well, we still have Beacon Rock.

Re: You proposed!!!?

Hey you are the first to notice that (or to comment on it). Yes, I am engaged. Wedding later this Summer. I've dragged her up a few mountains, ran into bears with her, made her toenails fall off with my hikes and she STILL said yes. ;- )

How are things with you, sir? Still finding odd machine parts in the Gorge?

Congratulations!!

Is this the same gal that you introduced to wild bears a few months ago! - wow, if so, she is one fine woman to still hang in there. I trust this wedding will take place in the appropriate high altitude or highly scenic location (with lots of your SP friends!)

I'm still finding cool stuff in the gorge and other places and lately have taken up lost waterfall locating and having a great time of it. Still working 50 and 60 hour weeks though and getting tired of that. Life is good, though - glad yours is going so well.

Re: Congratulations!!

Thanks, Don. You know I saw a show on OPB about a lost waterfall I think somewhere in the Gorge (that could be wrong) and it was like a 100 foot one. Sounds like very neat stuff.

Yes, this is the same girl from that trip report. She is leery of my hikes still but does go to the rock gym with me occasionally. Our wedding will be in Cannon Beach on the shore but is going to be really small, just family. We plan on having a cookout or something for the climbing/hiking group too so I'll let you know about that when it gets planned.

You should defeinitely post some pages or custom article on any lost waterfalls. That is a really cool subject!
