My Favorite Images / Cape Hatteras Lighthouse

Cape Hatteras Lighthouse is the tallest in the nation and a famous symbol of North Carolina. The lighthouse site houses a visitors center that is open throughout the year and houses displays on the island’s maritime history. The beacon from the light can be seen some 20-miles out to sea and has warned sailors for more than 100 years of the treacherous Diamond Shoals, the shallow sandbars which extend some 14 miles out into the ocean off Cape Hatteras.
