Alaska, USA

I know I said i was gonna upload all 5 lighthouses in a row, daily....but eventually, as usual, i thought it would maybe be better if i make a diversity, esp. due to the large amount of US cards i have pending for upload.....so i wanted to show something different from US each time...

 
This is the Five Finger Lighthouse.
From its location on a small island south of Juneau, Five Finger Lighthouse has guided ships through Alaska's scenic Frederick Sound since 1902. After fire destroyed the original wood station in 1933, a concrete, Art Deco-style tower and lantern were erected. The lighthouse was automated in 1984.
