Cape Disappointment, WA - LOTS of photos

Taken on Saturday, 4/16/05. This light sits in the same state park as North Head, just a couple miles down the coast. Both lights were important functions at the mouth of the mightly Columbia River where it meets the Pacific Ocean. All of the below images were taken from the Lewis and Clark Interpretive Center. You can hike 3/4 of a mile to the lighthouse itself; which I would have done, had I not had Mary with me and short on time. As I walked up the hill to the LCIC, we got caught in a downpour and had to run for cover until the rain passed. What resulted was some very dramatic lighting against a black sky.

As the sun came out and lit the front of the tower...

Some passing waterfowl...

And a closeup.

In similarity to Holland, this light also has an alternating red and white signature.

Red flash...

And white.

Here comes the freighter...

And as the storm clears, the sky gets pretty and the sun returns.
