Summer Heat at Short Beach #719

Summer Heat at Short Beach, Oregon Coast - oregon coast artwork by Emily Miller
The sky turns hazy with summertime heat on the Oregon coast. Tall wildflowers frame this view of the sea stack at Short Beach, a hidden gem just south of Cape Meares near Oceanside, on the north coast of Oregon. Driftwood and stones above the tideline, soft sand below. Short Creek cuts across the south end of the beach to meet the sea.

The bright purple flowers are known as fireweed. This was one of the first plants to grow after the devastation of the Mt. St. Helens eruption in 1980, and after the bombing of London during WWII. Fireweed has been an important plant to Native cultures for thousands of years.
