Battery Point Lighthouse, Crescent City, California

The Battery Point Lighthouse is located in Crescent City, California near the Northern California and Oregon border. The Battery Point Light was first lit in 1856 and later automated in 1953.

As with so many of the Oregon and California lighthouses, Battery Point is very picturesque, especially as dusk settles on the region. The coastline in this area of Northern California ranks as one of the most impressive readily accessible areas anywhere and is well worth the visit. As an added bonus, many of the tallest trees in the world (California’s coast redwoods can grow in excess of 350 feet high!) are located in the Redwood National and State Parks located nearby.

    Beautiful. I love lighthouses and the California-Oregon coast, so these are all winners for me. The last one is best, I think.

    I love traveling along the Oregon coast. When you get to the border of Northern California it changes so dramatically. We often fly down to a place called Siletz Bay. There’s a great restaurant there called the Sidedoor Cafe. – Margy

    Gorgeous photos, Kevin. That part of the coast is astonishingly beautiful, and your photos really capture it. I love the silhouetted bird looking out at the sea.
