Point Arena Lighthouse

The Point Arena was my final lighthouse during this US Trip while on my way back from Fort Bragg. I wasn’t very sure if I will be doing it but then at the last minute didn’t want to miss a chance and since I was driving through the Highway 1, I thought ‘why not?’
This is the one where the First Order Fresnel Lens is seen and you can visit the top of the lighthouse, even though sometimes there might be a waiting time. For me, it was about 20-30 mins because there were some school kids waiting for their turn. The view from the top was awesome and I managed to see another whale (a bigger one actually) from the top. You have to pay some fees if you want to go in. Most people just parked outside of the gate and took pictures from there. Also this is the point where the San Andreas fault goes into the sea.

    1. Thank you LD 🙂 Yeah, what’s the point of it otherwise. I was glad that I could go and that I did, even if it delayed my journey by an hour.


  1. I am terrified of heights, but I think even I would have to go to the top to see that view! Gorgeous photos! I love lighthouses 🙂
