Blue pink and gold sunset at Pigeon Point Lighthouse
Pigeon Point Lighthouse was built in 1872 and is a 115 feet tall, brick masonry conical tower that shines one white flash every 10 seconds. As the sun sets, the light guided maraners past its rocky shore for the night. Named after the clipper ship Carrier Pigeon that wrecked here in 1853 on June 6th. Hostelling International USA runs the overnight accomodations since 1981.
