We were very fortunate to be there on an almost cloudless January morning. We will now have photographs and memories that will last a lifetime of the early morning light over a turbulent ocean with the magnificent rock formations that Cannon Beach is known for.

We hiked the Clatsop Loop Trail and it was beautiful! Fairly easy hike, but the rain makes it muddy in a few areas. It was fun watching the surfers in the bay area after the hike. This one is not to be missed.
