Lighthouse of the Week, January 8-14, 2017: Grays Harbor, Washington

Grays Harbor is near Point Chehalis (click there to see where), though it is much further away from the ocean than it used to be, due to a lot of sediments getting deposited in front of it.  It's actualy in "Westport Light State Park", so search around the map for it.

Here's some history:

Grays Harbor (Westport) Lighthouse

There are many pictures of it, but they all look about the same, so I have a little variety this time.

The unique third-order clamshell Fresnel lens dates back to 1895.

It was famous enough to be on a stamp.
