Cape Meares Light at Sunset

The Cape Meares Light on the Oregon coast with the sunset and Pacific Ocean in the background. Originally called Cape Lookout by Captain John Meares, this name was mistakenly given to another cape nearby. Years later, to avoid confusion, this was renamed after the Captain himself.

It is actually the Shortest Lighthouse in Oregon standing at 38 feet tall. Still, the light from this shortest lighthouse could be seen up to 21 nautical miles out to sea. This amazing architecture has been maintained and is now part of the Cape Meares State Scenic Viewpoint.
