Image from last month's photo contest




Photo #1 (upper left): The North Head Lighthouse is the oldest working lighthouse on the West Coast. Visitors can hike the .03-mile trail to this site from the  Lewis and Clark Interpretive Center. The North Head Lighthouse is located in Fort Canby State Park in Ilwaco.

Photo #2 (upper right): At 107 feet tall, the Grays Harbor Lighthouse is the tallest lighthouse in Washington State. Visitors can climb the 135 stairs to the lantern room. The website states: "On a clear day you might even be able to see the top of Mount Rainier to the east." The lighthouse is in Westport, adjacent to Westport Light State Park.

Photo #3 (lower left): The Point No Point Lighthouse is the oldest lighthouse on Puget Sound. It is located in Hansville on the Kitsap Peninsula. The area is under repair from storm damage and the parking lot is closed. Nearby parking may be available in the Washington Department of Fish & Wildlife parking area.

Photo #4 (lower right): At 15 feet tall, the Gig Harbor Lighthouse is reported to be the shortest lighthouse in Washington state. The name of the lighthouse says it all when it comes to location, where it stands on land owned by the city of Gig Harbor at the entrance to the harbor. Technically, the land where the lighthouse sits is a park, although accessible only by boat (a paddleboard or kayak will do). Boaters are likely familiar with the lighthouse, less so the casual visitor to Gig Harbor. But the lighthouse can be seen from land, especially from the old Ferry Landing Park, or from the docks of some of the local waterfront restaurants. There are no services at the park, so if you do stop by be a good citizen and "pack it in, pack it out."
