Oregon Coast North 2017 — photo 53 of 60: The south entrance to Maxwell Point Tunnel, at the northern end of Oceanside Beach at Oceanside, about six miles west of Tillamook and a couple of miles south of Cape Meares Lighthouse, on Oregon’s North Coast. Because the tunnel bends a bit to the right, you can see only a small portion of the opening at the opposite end.
The beach on the other side of Maxwell Point is called, amazingly enough, Tunnel Beach. Even more amazing, in recent years some have been calling it Star Trek Beach. Because I love the coast and I love Star Trek, this is where I want my ashes scattered. Of course, a pricey space burial would be really out of this world! January 2017.
Camera used: Olympus OM-D E-M5 with Panasonic Lumix 12-35mm f/2.8 zoom lens.
