Sorry for the delay in posting - new house building has been keeping me rather busy the last couple weeks and haven't had a chance to sit down and edit.

Continuing on with my Washington/Oregon trip - this is Point Wilson Lighthouse, just outside Port Townsend Washington. This is one I had visited on my honeymoon with Matt back in 1997. Here is a shot of it from October 1997.

And the same angle, April 2005:

It appears as if some green accent paint was added around the trim and lantern room. I'm not totally sure what happened to all the grass. Here are some more views:

Those are some wonderful photos.

I like number six the best.

I had some friends visit this light about four years ago. At that time it was not open for people to walk the grounds. It looks like you were able to do so while they were there?

Hi Stephen,

This light actually sits in a Washington State Park, so I would think it would depend on their hours. We were there about 6pm in the evening. I also tend to think this light has undergone restoration in the last few years and perhaps it was closed when they were there due to these efforts. I know that Yaquina Head in Oregon will be closed all summer for a renovation - glad I was able to get there when I did!
