Landlocked Lighthouse

Providence Lighthouse--the largest inland lighthouse in the United States. It has a light that is illuminated at night, but it is not near a body of water and is not an aid to navigation. The tower height is 88ft. and it is located in Cedar City, Utah.


This photo was taken on a gray and overcast day after the snow was done falling in MAY--but then it turned around and fooled us and snowed in JUNE!!

    Love lighthouses and a great memory of mine growing up and visiting summers near Duluth, Minnesota and Lake Superior where we saw many Lighthouses .
    Great photo and love the colors.

    Wonderful catch and story. I, too, was under the illusion that one only found lighthouses at water's edge.

    Excellent shot Jodi.. I wonder why they built a lighthouse when it's not near the sea...
  • Sunil 6y

    This is so nice. The lighthouse almost looks like a cutout from a b/w photo.

    I love the vivid red and white stripes, they really stand out against the monochrome sky.
