Newport to Lincoln City by way of the Devil's Punchbowl

Left: Gull soars over Newport, Oregon

The Oregon coast is filled with natural wonders, including strange rock formations as well as the Oregon caves and dunes.

Formed long ago by volcanic activity are rocky shapes like the the Devil's Churn, Devil's Punchbowl, and the Devil's Elbow, where a charming hike including a tour of Heceta Head Lighthouse allows the visitor to see the original two-ton hand-ground Paris-made lens.
Right, the punchbowl fills as the tide comes in.
