Easily visible from the shoreline of Cannon Beach, this lighthouse has one of the most interesting and involved histories of any in the USA. Make time to read about this Lighthouse. It has a history worth noting.

We saw this lighthouse from Ecola State Park. It is out in the ocean, so you can't go to it. We took some pictures.

The view of the lighthouse is simply spectacular, especially from Ecola State Park side. The light house can be viewed from the city of Seaside as well. However, it is a steep hike from Seaside. The trail from Seaside connects back to the Ecola State...More
