Near Chapman Point in Ecola State Park in Oregon you can watch a storm begin to pick up along the coastline as each wave gets bigger. The rock point at this particular location of the coastline gives the area a touch of shelter as each wave that comes rushing in gets sidetracked on the rock ledge.
The sun still has some glisten to it as it creates a unique lighting in the spray from each wave before it breaks along the shores. White foamy water adorns the crest of the waves and different swirl patterns form around the base of each rock.
The Oregon Coast is one of the most scenic places where one can watch each wave increase in size as a storm picks up fury. Even on days when the ocean is calm, the scenery of the Oregon Coast near Chapman Point in Ecola State Park is spectacular. At low tide, you can explore each of the rock formations that have been hand carved by the natural force of the ocean.
Each day along the Oregon Coast changes and you will never get the same type of weather patterns or scenic views twice. Whether it is the tide, the sun, the hues in the water or fog that rolls in over the Oregon Coast, the beauty of the area is breathtaking. The hiking trails around Ecola State Park are plentiful and each viewpoint gives you a different picturesque scene.
