The pin on the map is NOT where the light house is

The lighthouse is located south of Ketchikan, on a small, rocky island at the northern entrance to Tongass Narrows.

This is a very short, all one color lighthouse with nothing around it to see. We took a 15 minute boat ride out to see it. Well, that was a waste of time.

One of the two photos shown is fin fact NOT Guard Island. I will send a few photos of Guard Island, a wonderful microcosm of South East Alaska.
