Tillamook Rock Lighthouse | USA

Tillamook Rock Lighthouse is a deactivated lighthouse on the Oregon Coast, situated on less than an acre of basalt rock in the Pacific Ocean. Construction started in 1890.

“Sea conditions necessitating the construction of the Tillamook Rock Lighthouse were notoriously brutal – so brutal, in fact, that no local workers could be found to participate in the project, as they believed leveling-off a small rock located a mile off-shore was obviously a foolhardy idea.”
