Yaquina Head Light

Visiting the nation’s many historic and picturesque lighthouses has become very popular among travelers these days, so I thought I might provide some photographic examples of a number of particularly attractive examples of such structures that I have encountered during the past few years.  Although a second installment will follow next month, by no means should my personal offerings be interpreted as anything approaching a “top 20” list of the finest lighthouses that the country has to offer.
