Neskowins Island

Proposal Rock, Island, Neskowin, Oregon, Neskowin Creek

I might as well share one last photo of Proposal Rock, where I often found myself pointing my lens during a recent trip to Neskowin. Proposal Rock is a sea stack just at the edge of the ocean, named for the turn of the century marriage proposal of Charles Gage to Della Page. I wandered back up the beach along Slab Creek and snapped this photo, with the sun barely shining through the thick storm clouds collecting above. I love me a good coastal storm!

Proposal Rock Reflections

Proposal Rock at Neskowin in the fog

I visited the tiny beach town of Neskowin two weeks ago and because of my busy schedule, have not been able to post the photos until this week. Once I got home I realized I had taken many photos of Neskowin's most prominent feature, Proposal Rock. On the second day we were there, it was very foggy, and I took this photo as the fog was finally starting to burn off and back over the rock.

Ghost Forest at Neskowin

Ghost Forest and Proposal Rock in fog, Neskowin Oregon

On the second day of a recent trip to Neskowin, Oregon, there was a very thick fog that rolled in from the ocean. I know that in the low tide, the remains of an ancient "ghost forest" can be seen on the south side of the rock. I crossed Slab Creek and walked as far down the beach as I could until you could barely make out the silhouette of Proposal Rock with the ghost forest standing guard around it.
