Cape Meares Lighthouse is the shortest of all the lighthouses on the Oregon coast with only a 38 foot tower.
From the same vista point was this view of the Three Arches which provides protection for over 200K sea birds. In 1901 a biologist and a photographer started the preservation process to protect the birds after hunters would boat out to the islands and shoot the birds for target practice. Now it is illegal to be within 500 yards of the islands between May and September.
Also in the same area is the Octopus Tree, a large gnarly Sitka Spruce believed to be 250-300 years old.
One more rock picture, not sure if they have a name or not because after awhile everything just kind of blurs into one jumbled mess. But they were pretty and I wanted a picture.
Tomorrow we'll be hitting beaches, some new, some old.
