Comments :
This has got to be the coldest location on the California Coast. It's almost always cold. This lightstation boasts the most foggy days in a year as well as being one of the windiest of the lightstations. If it's sunny during your visit, you are one of the lucky few. It takes a while to drive back to the far tip of the point where this is.
