I was driving up the Oregon coast and stopped at a widened area off the road where there were other cars parked at a scenic lookout. In the distance on the other side of the cove stood Heceta Head Light. It sits on a very isolated point of land and that is what makes this setting so picturesque. The light sends a beam 21 miles out to sea and this makes it the strongest light along the entire Oregon coast. The lighthouse and buildings are jointly operated by The National Parks Service and The Oregon Parks and Recreation Board.
