Terrible Tilly


Take in this aerial video of what was once one of the most well-known lighthouses in the USA's Pacific Northwest.  It's the Tillamook Rock Lighthouse, and it sits on a tiny island about 2 km (around 1.2 mi.) off the coast of Oregon in Tillamook County.  When completed in 1881, it was the most expensive lighthouse on the West Coast.  It soon garnered the nickname "Terrible Tilly" due to the dangers involved in reaching the island in inclement weather.  Now inactive, it's listed in the National Historic Register.
