Ruby Beach

Sea stacks, lots of big logs, a gravel beach, and a small spit across the mouth of Cedar Creek. And a wonderful forested slope rising up behind the beach. Apparently, Ruby Beach gets its name from the presence of red minerals in the sand and gravel. This was a quick stop, so I didn't spend much time looking at the details. There's so much other stuff to get distracted by here!


Dan posted from here recently and provides a bit more substance, both historic and geologic: Reading the Washington Landscape.
