Deception Point Lighthouse in Washington State
Deception Point Lighthouse in on the southwestern tip of Washington State, near the Columbia
River. However, it is not for entrance to the Columbia River.
Many sailing ships have mistaken their position and got in a lot of trouble thinking they were entering the Columbia River. Like most lighthouses it has been decommissioned. GPS has eliminated the need for a lighthouse to let the ships know their position. I have exaggerated the surroundings to make a more pleasing painting.
