Cascade River

This place felt a lot like Acadia National Park in Maine, with its bedrock cliffs, cascading stream, and isolated gravel beach.  I think the road right along the edge and the stone guard rails helped, too.

The beach again faces a little east, rather than directly offshore, suggesting the influence of northeasterly storms in shaping it.  Maybe it was the light, or my imagination, but the beach looked like maybe the red gravel of the last few places is now mixed with gray, possibly signaling some sort of local geologic change.  Could the river be draining an area with darker rocks?
