History Details at Hug Point, Cannon Beach
Cannon Beach, Oregon Virtual Tour

Around the north side of the road, where the water is deeper, sunnier days reveal mysterious looking basalt slabs lying in the water, somehow reminiscent of ancient Greek ruins.

A few hundred feet south of the road, a giant mushroom-shaped boulder pokes out from the sand, covered with barnacles and with a small cluster of tide pools at its base.

Around the next two points (to the south) you'll find giant crevices in the cliff face and those telltale green lines of algae running around the rocks - signs that's where the tide usually exists.

Pictured here is the metallic knob embedded in the rock, as described in the previous tour spot. Next is a trip much farther back in time: a wood fossil embedded in the rockface.
