Point Montara Shark Sign

The Point Montara Lighthouse sits on a rocky cliff south of San Francisco. At first only a fog signal was installed on the bluff.  The signal alone was not enough to stop shipwrecks, so a 30 foot cast-iron lighthouse tower was erected in 1928.  In 1970 the light was automated, and in 1980 the buildings were leased to a youth hostel. 

About Pam
Richard and Pam lived in the San Francisco Bay Area 14 years (1987-1999 and 2008-2011). They lived in Florida 13 years previously, until returning in July 2011 to present. They hope their photography will encourage you to get out and discover nature's beauty in your own backyard, parks, and wild places.
