Yaquina Head Lighthouse

One of the coolest and most photographed lighthouses in Oregon is the Yaquina Head Lighthouse which is part of the Yaguina Head Natural Area in Newport. It is Oregon's tallest lighthouse.

Built in 1872, that, and the surrounding area is under the control of the Bureau of Land Management. It is a first-class natural area for all to enjoy. 

The area includes an interpretive center and gift shop. There are many tidepools nearby to study and learn about marine life.

All photos here were taken as the sun was setting. The first pic is the lighthouse itself, of course.

The second, is the memorial at the base of the lighthouse...dedicated to fisherman lost at sea in the Northwest. The third photo is looking from the lighthouse toward Newport. And, finally a glimpse of a setting sun.
