Updates to the Greencity photo albums

Manuela and I took a trip to the Oregon Coast October 25-26 to celebrate our 13th wedding anniversary, spending Saturday night in Florence, Oregon, before traveling north to Newport on Sunday.

Yaquina Head Lighthouse Lamps and Lens

Yaquina Head Lighthouse Lamps and Lens

We visited four of Oregon’s nine lighthouses over the two days. Saturday, we first stopped at Cape Blanco Lighthouse near Port Orford, the oldest standing lighthouse on the Oregon Coast, and also located at the westernmost point in Oregon. We vitied Umpqua River lighthouse late Saturday afternoon. Sunday we visited Heceta Head lighthouse and two near Newport–Yaquina Bay and Yaquina Head. We were fortunate to visit during tour hours at Yaquina Head, as during tours visitors are permitted to climb the metal stairs at Yaquina Head lighthouse, which stands 162 feet above sea level. The 93-foot lighthouse is the tallest on the Oregon Coast, and visitors areĀ  permitted, with supervision, to climb to the top–though not above the lens. Light from the fix lamps are visible from 19 miles out to sea.
