Haystack Rock is a 235-foot (72-meter) tall monolith (or sea stack) rock formation on the Oregon coast in the northwestern United States, the third-tallest such "intertidal" (meaning it can be reached by land) structure in the world. A popular tourist destination, the rock is adjacent to the beach and accessible by foot during low tide. Haystack Rock tide pools are home to many intertidal animals, including starfish, anemone, crabs, chitons, limpets, and sea slugs. The rock is also a refuge for many sea birds, including terns and puffins.

I also noticed the seastack rocks in the background at the carnival in Kindergarten Cop. I noticed them because they don't exists in Astoria. Now that I live here and know, it is an obvious mistake in the film. Oregon is very photogenic and has had several movies filmed in the Portland area and on the coast.
