A view of the mountains and valley from a bench at Shenandoah National Park, Virginia
On January 21, 1988, the lighthouse was added to the National Register of Historic Places under the title of Bass Harbor Head Light Station and belongs to the U.S. Coast Guard.
The tower and lighthouse viewing area offers a vantage point to see a panoramic view of the harbor and the islands in the distance. This is easily one of the most, if not the most, photographed lighthouse in New England.
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.
The wait is over; the sunrise has occurred; the views were fantastic; it is now time to leave. People milling around after sunrise at Cadillac Mountain, Arcadia National Park, Maine
