Point Reyes, California is the windiest place on the Pacific Coast and the second foggiest place on the North American continent. Weeks of fog, especially during the summer months, frequently reduce visibility to hundreds of feet. The Point Reyes Headlands, which jut 10 miles out to sea, pose a threat to each ship entering or leaving San Francisco Bay. The historic Point Reyes Lighthouse warned mariners of danger for more than a hundred years.
The Point Reyes Lighthouse, built in 1870, was retired from service in 1975 when the U.S. Coast Guard installed an automated light. They then transferred ownership of the lighthouse to the National Park Service, which has taken on the job of preserving this fine specimen of our heritage.
In 1980, Director John Carpenter, used the lighthouse as a main location for his gothic horror film, "The Fog". In the movie, it played the broadcast studio for WKAB fm radio, owned by DJ Stevie Wayne (Adrienne Barbeau). The story all takes place on April 21st. This art release celebrates that anniversary.
