Rescuing rescuers

Rescuing the rescuers

There are several qualities that make the Northern Oregon coast majestic– the constant surf, for example. It sounds like roaring thunder as it breaks against jagged cliff sides and enters natural caves, then draws back out, rhythmically repeating the process in a symphony that has carved the coastline across eons. From a distance, the white wash seems perfectly synchronized and almost placid, but the same breathtaking waves that beckon tourists from around the world are some of the most unpredictable and treacherous as well.
