I loved this giant compass built into the sidewalk at the Yaquina Head Lighthouse. It adds to the charm and delight of the grounds, which we spent a lovely afternoon exploring.
I love, too, that the park/grounds is called the Yaquina Head Outstanding Natural Area. That sounded funny to me at first, but I later learned that “Outstanding Natural Area” is a designation for areas in the United States that have been little altered by human impact and that meet certain relevance and importance criteria in order to become protected lands. At any rate, we thought it was a beautiful and outstanding area, and we could happily spend many more hours exploring this lovely and delightful spot.

What a beautiful place! The little lighthouse against that stark background is very powerful.
I loved it, and I definitely want to go back. We missed the tour of the lighthouse itself, but the interpretive center was excellent, and of course the grounds…add in the ocean and the little rocky beach…definitely going back!
