Oregon Coast Haystack Rock
There are two monoliths called Haystack Rock on the
Oregon Coast. There are different kinds of monoliths but
basically a monolith is a single massive rock or stone.
Many monoliths around the world claim to be largest this,
or tallest that, depending on where it is, how it leans,
what it is made of and so on. Like the monolith in Cannon
Beach claims to be the third largest of its kind, and
the monolith in Pacific City claims to be the fourth largest
of its kind, yet the Pacific City monolith is actually
taller than the Cannon Beach monolith.
Anyway, they are both
great monoliths worth seeing, they are both called Haystack Rock,
and they are both on the Beautiful Oregon Coast.
