The first time we saw seastacks in person was at pacific coast near Olympic National Park's Lake Ozzette area. A peculiarly shaped island prominently stood offshore by itself - a seastack! Looking around, closer to the shore, there were a group of seastacks to the north of this seastack, and a few more to the south of it.
We stood in the rain for 5 to 10 minutes by the shore listening to the pounding waves, looking at the mysterious seastacks. Right at the time we were leaving, the cloud broke, the sun came out, we went back to the shore and lingered around for 5 more minutes before hiking back to the parking lot 3 miles inland.

Seastack is a geological landform consisting of a steep and often vertical column or columns of rock in the sea near a coast, formed by erosion. The nature has been shaping them for millions of years!
