It seems appropriate to end my series on Harris Beach State Park with photos of the setting sun like the one above and those below. But first, I would like to cover a striking geological feature: Key Hole Rock.
And now for the promised sunset photos:
Monday’s Blog-A-Book Post from It’s 4 AM and a Bear Is Standing on Top of Me: On a lonely night walk home from visiting her boyfriend, my sister Nancy encounters a ghost from the Graveyard that floats down in front of her. She screams, and screams, and screams…

Great pictures Curt. Don’t you just love geographical features like that.
Thanks, Andrew. I always consider them an added bonus. –Curt
Beautiful sunset photos!
Thanks, Theresa. Appreciated. –Curt
I took one look at that top photo, and suddenly was 20 miles off Pass Cavallo, along the Texas coast. Sunset and water often look similar from land and from sea!
That’s a beauty, Linda…
Mother Nature is a talented artist. Thanks for sharing.
Yes she is Peggy. Hardly a day goes by that I don’t appreciate her art works in some way or the other!
Beautiful sunsets, love the rocks too
Thanks. It’s one of our go to places! 🙂
A sublime spot for photographers! Does the tide come in very quickly? The sunset photos are sublime – treasue every single one!
It has it all, Annika. Beautiful rocks, incredible sunsets, and really fun tide pools. It’s a favorite area of ours. As for tides, plenty of time to get out of the way. 🙂 We had at least a couple of hours to play in the tide pools between it going out and coming in. –Curt
Isn’t nature an amazing sculptor? What a collection of gems that only reinforce my wanderlust for Oregon.
Laughing, I suspect you have a wanderlust for just about anywhere now, Sue. 🙂 But Oregon is a great place to start. And yes, Mother Nature is one hell of an artist! –Curt
This makes me miss the beautiful PNW. So many places unvisited. Can’t wait to go back to the States to see friends and visit these places.
In the meantime, I doubt you will be suffering in Lisbon. It’s a beautiful city. Thanks for commenting. –Curt
what a nice view
Thanks. Appreciated. –Curt
Boy, if that isn’t a perfect beach I don’t know what is! Something about a rock with a hole in it that is interesting no matter where you go. Looks like you stumbled upon a lovely sunset while you were at it.
It is one of our favorites, Jenny. Another one is Bandon. Sunset Beach/Shoreacres is right up there as well. All are available to us within a 3-4 hour drive. Kind of like Pt. Reyes/Bodega Bay is available to you. So, while I miss our regular access to the Pt. Reyes Area, Oregon has done a good job of making up for it. 🙂 –Curt
It would be hard to be far from the ocean wouldn’t it?!
Yes it would Jenny. I have close to an equal love affair with the mountains and oceans. I could, if forced, live with one to the other, but it would be hard. 🙂 –Curt
Good point. I would have a hard time living too far from Lake Tahoe too
I do miss my 30 years of backpacking up and down the Sierras, Jenny. That’s why I occasionally have to drive south and hit the trail. “The mountains are calling and I must go!”
That’s a good thing! We have lived my friend!
Yes we have, Jenny. And still are. 🙂 –Curt
Nothing like a nice coastal sunset when you’ve got stacks to add interest. At least that’s my key takeaway.
You’ve got it Dave. 🙂
Oh, my. Sundown at Harris Beach. So very, very lovely.
That it is Rusha. Something to make you to stop whatever you are doing and appreciate the beauty that nature presents. –Curt
