This is the view from the Devil’s Punchbowl, further north. The arrow still points to the Yaquina Head Lighthouse. The coast is far more scenic and rugged as you travel away from Newport, though there are still gorgeous beaches.

Lastly, looking north from Cape Foulweather, where we had beautiful weather while we coasted.
