Oregon, USA

No. 4 in the set of 5 lighthouses Addis had sent me.

This is Umpqua River Lighthouse.

It replaced a previous tower destroyed by erosion. Dedicated in 1894, the new brick sentinel was erected on higher ground south of Reedsport, Oregon.
Visible from a distance of 21 miles, the light from its first-order Fresnel lens flashes two white beams, one red.

of course, the matching stamp...dont think ive forgotten them ;)
