Not far south of MP 32 – perhaps two miles from Cannon Beach - this tree-smothered parking lot appears.
Is this an historical photo? No. But this wondrous spot is leant an ancient vibe with the presence of this dignified, elderly machine.
Take the small path down and you’ll find a sandy beach covered in cobblestones near the tide line, as well as cliffs and rock structures that some have whimsically claimed look like a dragon and its young turned to stone.
Walk this beach to find agates, and you may also hear the legendary "singing sands." (That's a rare phenomenon where, under the right conditions, the sand makes squeaking or violin-like noises.)
