A Lighthouse of California

CA 25D Point Diablo

longitude 122° 29' 58" W

Point Diablo is located roughly midway between Point Bonita and Lime Point on the northern side of the Golden Gate. The point protrudes some 600 feet into the waters from the Marin Headlands. In 1923, the Lighthouse Service decided to mark this navigational hazard, and a small white shack with a pitched red roof was placed on the sloping point some eighty feet above the water.

This photo was taken from a Bay Harbor tour boat, but they don't always go this far out.
