More Light
updated: Jan 17, 2013, 1:03 PM

By John Wiley

More mysteries at the Point Conception Lighthouse from my recent flight there, are revealed with help from a link JoJoFlys posted in a comment on my earlier pix. This wide shot looking toward the south shows things in context, with the keeper's house (closeup here) just visible in shade to the left of the highest point where the original light was. The closer pic better looking toward the west shows that hilltop where there's apparently a telecommunications shack now standing on part of the foundation, with the keeper's house on the left and barracks on the right. The closeup shows a tiny shack that's visible above the cliff at the left edge of the wide shot, that was maybe an outhouse or something related to beach access? I had thought much of the construction out there was related to Vandenberg's defense and space work, but maybe nearly all of it is from various incarnations of the lighthouses, fog horns and bells that have been placed there?
