Maine – Bass Harbor Head Lighthouse

The cliffside Bass Harbor Head Lighthouse in Acadia National Park, Maine  marks the entrance to Bass Harbor on the southwestern side of Mount Desert Island. The lighthouse, built of brick in 1858 on a stone foundation, stands 56 feet above high water.

The best view of this lighthouse is from the ocean, but this side view shows the treacherous rocks of the cliff.
