reference for this stretch of coast (PDF) doesn't specify what rock unit is on display here (I'd guess Otter Point Formation given location and general look, but I'd just be guessing), but really, does it matter? There's something elvish, magical and serene about this view, even as it reflects the violence of coastal erosion here in the PNW.
Photo run through Paint.net's autolevel routine to improve contrast and saturation. May 8, 2013. FlashEarth location uncertain, but it looks about right. As noted, there's no sign along the road to warn you this pullout is coming up, but it's a mile or two south of Arch Rock. From the parking area, take the path southward.
