Battery Point Lighthouse, Crescent City

Built in 1856, the Battery Point Lighthouse, also known as Crescent City Lighthouse, is an active lighthouse in Crescent City, California operating as a private navigational aid for vessels and is manned by a keeper in residence. Accessible by foot only at low tide, the lighthouse is very picturesque at both high and low tide, whether it is surrounded by water or craggy rock. Unfortunately the museum that is housed there was not open when I went, but just crossing the tide pools and getting a close up view of the lighthouse was pretty spectacular.
