The Ghosts of Neskowin

Neskowin - Ghost Forest. Beneath the beaches along the Oregon Coast are remnants of giant stumps. The Native Americans who lived here passed down stories of a giant wave that took out entire forests of Sitka, cedar, fir. Literally broke them off at various heights and the salt water and sand preserved them. They reveal themselves during very low tides and I was lucky enough to be there during a dawn when the ghosts of Neskowin told me a story. Modern technology has verified that what the Native Americans said. In the 1700's a tsunami hit this coast!
