Photo Contest


2007 photo contest winner

Cape Meares Lighthouse 11th Annual Photo Contest

Are you an avid photographer? On your next stay with us, take a drive to the Cape Meares lighthouse, enter your photo in their contest and you just might be the next winner of their 11th annual photo contest. Cape Meares is the northern most cape on the 3 Capes Scenic Route. The lighthouse is the shortest one on the cape and has a beautiful red Fresnel lens.

Currently, they have a camera focused on a Peregrine Falcon nest and are waiting in anticipation for the eggs to hatch. The Peregrine Falcon became an endangered species due to the use of pesticides, especially DDT. Since DDT was banned in the early 1970s, the populations recovered due to protection of nesting places and releases to the wild. Click here for current status of the nest Peregrine Update
