Point Reyes Lighthouse, Point Reyes National Seashore, CA

The Point Reyes Light was built in 1870 to protect mariners from the treacherously foggy Point Reyes headlands—which jut 10 miles into the sea near San Francisco Bay—and stayed on duty until 1975. The red-roofed lighthouse is now a museum operated by the National Park Service.
