Called the Peter Iredale, the ship was abandoned over a hundred years ago on Clatsop Spit near Fort Stevens in Warrenton after a storm sent it reeling ashore. One of the most accessible shipwrecks in the Graveyard of the Pacific, the tides determine how much of this treasure is buried or unburied. Photographers love the skeleton ship and have captured thousands of incredible images with all types of lighting and angles eliciting a variety of moods. The wreck is contained within Fort Stevens State Park as part of the Lewis and Clark National and State Historical Parks so make a day of it and get your nature fix along with some sweet pirate selfies.

Here are some of our favorite shots of it:
