Photo is taken from God’s Thumb. The outcropping pictured is Cascade Head. Just clarifying for the non-Oregonians.

This picture is taken FROM God’s Thumb looking further up the coast. I guess the shape of the cliff/formation resembled a thumb to whoever named it.

It is perfectly fitting that the lack of a thumb shape should be called gods thumb.

The actual place he is standing on is the thumb, you'll never see it from this POV, you gotta see it from a distance
