Cape Meares Lighthouse, Cape Meares, Oregon

This light stands high atop an ocean bluff in Cape Meares State Park on the Three Capes Scenic Loop near Tillamook, Oregon. Construction of the light began in 1888 and it was first lit in 1890. The light was decommissioned in 1963 and replaced by a beacon which is located on a hill just East of the original tower (photo on right). Photos taken in September 2010
