Lighthouse of the Week, January 22-28, 2017: Patos Island, Washington

Patos Island lighthouse is a restored lighthouse, and happens to be the northernmost lighthouse in Washington's San Juan Islands.   And it's one of those rare lighthouses with a striking volcanic peak behind it, from some angles.  In this case, the peak is Mount Baker.

Here are some links with more information about it:

Patos Island Lighthouse (from Lighthouse Friends)

"The lighthouse is now part of Patos Island State Park. The fourth-order Fresnel lens used in the lighthouse was saved by maritime author Jim Gibbs."

And the pictures.  There are many, and many are very good.

Great panoramic view
