Wanted to visit the western-most point of contiguous US, but so windy we couldn't open the car door. An awesome display of Nature, though. We'll have to return on a calmer day, if that ever happens.

Cape Blanco Lighthouse is easily accessible and has great views -- and great opportunities to take some photos, especially if you go to the beach down by the Hughes House (also in Cape Blanco State Park). Have a bit of patience on the tour -- you do get to go up the spiral stairs to the beacon, but they can... More

Unfortunately, when we drove up to this Cape Blanco, we had not researched enough to know that on Tuesdays the building is closed. However, the volunteers allowed us to enjoy the grounds and answered many of our questions. We discovered that this lighthouse is the most southern of all of Oregon's lighthouses and was the first to be fitted with... More

Great to be able to go to the top and see how it all works, such a shame it was thick fog and we couldn't see out the windows!

The tour hours posted say Wednesday through Monday 10am to 3:30pm so when we arrived on Father's Day Sunday at 3:21pm I thought we were in time for the last tour. No, they sell the last tickets at 3:15 so we were 6 minutes late. The gates close and lock at 3:30 but are manned so they let cars out... More
