Here is another....

I didn't even have to look this one up.

It's Bandon Lighthouse in Bandon, OR

It was taken from the other side of the harbor entrance (Coquille River) .

To carrying on with the lighthouse theme:

Here are two lighthouses. They are both USCG authorized private lighthouses. They were constructed by a PNW author.

What are their names?
Where are they located?
Who built them? (or perhaps had them built)

The last one was probably tough. This should be easier.

This was constructed by the CCC and was used by the military in WWII.
It can be reached by driving or hiking. We've done both. There is a campground nearby.

Hint:
The darker blue in the background is the Pacific Ocean. The lighter blue is the sky. :)

That's amazing. Have you read any of his books?

My grandparents were at Point no Point lighthouse when my grandfather retired from the USLHS. That is right by Skunk Bay.

You also got the Rock shelter correct.

No, but it kind of piqued my interest. I may have to check them out.

It looks a lot like the Point Fermin Lighthouse in San Pedro, CA, but I don't think it is unless it's a rear or side view.

I think that's in your back yard. Right? ;)

Ha! Correct! That didn't take long! It's pretty much right in my back yard....just a short 30 miles away. Oh and hey, this is my 3000th post!

This will be easy to guess the place but maybe not to guess the mountain peak. Guess the place in the two pics. Guess the peak in the first pic. The second pic is taken of the place from the top of that peak. You can drive to the place, but not the peak.

The first picture below is a unusual plant with some strange characteristics.
The challenge is to name where the picture was taken.
Bonus points awarded for naming the plant and some unusual things about it.
The other three pictures are to help identify the location.

This is a natural rock formation after which the nearby town is named.

Looks like an Amorphophallus titanum aka Corpse flower known for it's smell like a rotting dead mammal which attracts various beetles and flies to pollinate it. Probably taken at the Quail Botanical Gardens in Encinitas, Ca.
