Forbidden Cliffs near Manzanita - Planet of the Apes on the Coast
Rockaway Beach, Manzanita, Wheeler, Nehalem Bay Virtual Tour, Oregon Coast

Glancing to the north, here's what you see: more of that "Planet of the Apes" vibe.

It's as if this cathedral had been mostly eroded away at this end, with one rather surreal arm of rock stretching down to form a tall sea cave - complete with mesmerizing openings in back. You naturally strain to see what's inside or to see through the gaps.

Below: a close up of this structure, as seen from the very tip of Neahkahnie Mountain.
