Oregon Coast Viewpoint along Highway 101
My personal favorite spot on the coast - though there are many superb places - is Devil's Churn just across from the Cape Perpetual lookout. A short hike down from Highway 101 also known as the Pacific Coast National Scenic Byway, takes you down to the shorline where volcanism has created a long narrow passage of hundreds of feet. If the tide is right and the surf is big the waves crash into this area like a freight train - gushing in and out of the Devils Churn in spectacular fashion. I'll try to find a photo of the Churn for the next post.
