Point Arena Lighthouse

I don’t think I’m alone when I say that I’m obsessed with lighthouses. There is something so eerie, mystical and ruggedly beautiful about them. The Point Arena Lighthouse in Northern California is no exception.

DSC_6259This lighthouse is located on the stunning rocky coast of Mendocino County. Come take a tour with me…I hope you’re not afraid of heights.

Enjoy the view along the way…

We made it to the top. I love this gorgeous copper ceiling.

DSC_6336Your reward, a bird’s eye view of the incredible landscape.

  1. Gorgeous Susan! I love lighthouses too! Your pictures are so wonderful. I can almost hear the waves crashing on the rocks down below and feel the wind whipping through my hair. No lens/light inside? Love the spiral staircase.
