The Adventure Continues… Lighthouse
I love old lighthouses, and in this episode of California’s Gold Huell takes a trip to a very special historic lighthouse, the St George Reef Lighthouse. The site is nearly inaccessible and is definitely not a tourist destination — so it’s a real privilege to experience the sights and sounds, not to mention the view, of this incredible 19th Century structure, now in the hands of the St George Reef Lighthouse Preservation Society.
Visit a place that very few Californians have ever seen: the St. George Reef Lighthouse, eight miles off the coast of Northern California, in Crescent City. Join Huell as he is airlifted to the tiny reef which holds this now-abandoned century old treasure. This one-of-a-kind structure reaches 142 feet in the air and is a “wave washed” lighthouse–meaning that it takes the brunt of the sea from all sides. This adventure is a rare treat.
