Thanks to Brent bringing us a new trivia question, I decided to do one myself. But this one doesn't have just one right answer, and I don't know how many we'll end up with. So here we go.....

I love to visit lighthouses, and it's especially cool when I visit a light and while I'm there on the grounds I can see a different lighthouse close by! Can you name a lighthouse from which you can see another lighthouse (or more then one)? No range lights or double pierhead lights, let's see how many we can come up with. And if you have a picture of a lighthouse taken from another lighthouse, feel free to post it!!

Chicago Harbor and the Chicago Harbor South.
Racine Harbor and Wind Point WI
Sturgeon Bay Ship Canal and Sturgeon Bay Pierhead

I am thinking of what I see as I go around the lake.

Duluth MN-Inner, Outer, and North Breakwater lights
Port Washington breakwater and Old Port Washington
Ram Island Ledge and Portland Head.

From Windmill Point Light in Ontario ...

Looking down the Canadian side of the river you can see Prescott Harbor, both inner and outer lights .... and looking across the river, you can see Ogdensburg (NY) Light.
Believe those who search for the truth ...
Doubt those who find it ...

Hersh, I love this idea!!! When we go we like to see if we can find other lights too.

From Avery Point, Ct, you can see Race Rock, L.I. and New London Harbor, Ct. and New London Ledge, Ct. You can also see on a very clear day and use of binoculars, you can see Little Gull, L.I..

From Stonington, Ct., you can see Watch Hill, Latimer Reef.

From Castle Hill, R.I., you can see Beavertail Light

From Horton Point, L.I., on a clear day, you can see Saybrook Light, Ct and Lynde Point, Ct.

On the road to Nubble Light, ME, you can see Boone Island, ME

Because of it's unique situation, I'm not sure whether you
would include both New and Old Cape Henry's.

Also....on a clear day you can see Thimble Shoals(VA) from
the lantern of Old Point Comfort. It's a bit of a stretch
but it can be done with binoculars.

You can also see Price's Creek from Bald Head Island and I would say that you could probably see it from Oak Island.

You can see both Cape Romain lights from each other.

And I will go out on a limb here, but you should be able to see Hilton Head Rear Range from the Harbour Town Lighthouse since they are so close, but I am not 100% sure of that one.

Great Idea. I will be checking for photos!

Standing beside Goat Island in Newport Harbor, you can see Rose Island and possibly Ida Lewis, but that is around the bend. You can also see these from the bridge if you're not the one driving. See the photos I posted last night:

In Maine this is a only part of the list I am putting together.

From Portland Head Lighthouse you can see Ran Island Ledge Light.

I believe you can see Whaleback Lighthouse from Portsmouth.

At Owls Head you can see another lighthouse - I am not sure which one.

If I am not mistaken their are several other lighthouses in this part of Maine that you can see other from. I am not sure which ones they are.

From Pt. Bonita one can see Miles Rock, Alcatraz, and Fort Point lighthouses.

From Pt. Feremin you can see Los Angeles Harbor light

From Hilton Head you should also be able to pick out Haig Point.

I wondered about Haig Point and Harbor Town. I didn't know Haig Point existed when we made our trip down there.
