Yaquina Head Lighthouse

Staircase at Yaquina Head Lighthouse.
The historic Yaquina Head Lighthouse, Oregon's tallest and second oldest continuously operating lighthouse, is also located on the headland.
The nightly vigil of watching the light is gone as are the resident keepers and their quarters, but the staff of the Bureau of Land Management, now responsible for the tower, guide you through the lighthouse with tales of yesteryear.
As you climb the 110 of 114 steps of Oregon's tallest lighthouse at 93 feet, you get a sense of what it was like to carry supplies up the spiral staircase as you breathe a little deeper.
