~~Pigeon Point Lighthouse~~

The tallest lighthouse on the west coast of the United States, Pigeon Point, was built in 1871 to guide ships along the rugged California Coast.

Sitting 50 miles south of San Francisco, the lighthouse is now a part of the California National Park Service and was named for the first ship that crashed at that point on the shore, "The Pigeon."
