The Piedras Blancas Light Station was built and first
illuminated in February 1875 to aid sailor navigation. It had
a visibility potential of 19-20 miles. In 1906 a fog signal audio sound
was added to further aid maritime. Today it is managed by
Bureau Land Management.

We did not visit the Light Station up close.
There are some seal pups in the above however
