Yaquina Head Lighthouse
Description: When we first arrived at the Lighthouse the light was an amazing shade of salmon pink and it was fairly clear. In just a matter of minutes a heave fog rolled in and by the time we left you could barely see anything. I loved it!
The 93 foot tower, Oregon's tallest, is located on a narrow point of land jutting due west into the Pacific Ocean north of Newport, at Yaquina Head Outstanding Natural Area. Winds and rain have buffeted this lighthouse since its beginning in 1872. It took approximately one year, and over 370,000 bricks to construct Oregon's tallest lighthouse.
