Although the weather reports said showery, it was just beautiful!!! The fall is outstanding in Cannon Beach at this time of year. We missed the summer beach crowd so it was easy going, relaxed and stunning.

If you park on the Main Street near Haystack Rock, it’s a really short walk down to the beach.
