Oregon Coast Haystack Rock
Information about Oregon Coast Haystack Rocks:
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.
