Cape Mendocino Lighthouse, Shelter Cove, CA

Cape Mendocino Lighthouse at Mal Coombs Park. It’s hard to believe that this 43 foot tower was at one time the nations tallest lighthouse. This is due to the 422 foot cliff that it sits upon. It sent it’s first bright white signal on December 1, 1868 but has since been flown here to it’s new home and been decommissioned.
