A Foul Weather Light

Yaquina Head Light is Oregon's tallest lighthouse, perched on a
basaltic peninsula at the edge of the Pacific Ocean. In the late 1800's,
it was know as the Cape Foulweather Lighthouse... a more colorful name
in my opinion, one perfectly describing a beacon that guides ships
 to safe harbor in the worst of maritime conditions.
