Note the water pipe made of Redwood in this photo. A diverted spring behind the lighthouse provided fresh water to Coast Guard crews along with a rain fed cistern. The pipes were wrapped in metal wire and coated in creosote to prevent expansion and decay. Many of them are still intact, reminding us of how the lighthouse used to function. The walkway next to these pipes leads to the spring and an old cabin that CLDS plans to rebuild.
