I visited this light in 1992, and again in 1997. If you look closely at the photos on this page you'll see how the recent renovation changed the look of the tower. Thanks to docent Michael Gemmell for giving me a special tour, including some close up views of the gorgeous lens.
Access to the light is restricted (the tunnel is blocked) except during
regularly scheduled tours. Pt. Bonita has just undergone (winter 95/96) a
restoration, including rebuilding the trail down to the light. The light is
open for visitors from 12:30 to 3:30 Saturday and Sunday, and for monthly "full
moon" tours. Call 415-331-1540 for info.
This photo was taken in the light tower ... if you look closely, you can see the Golden Gate Bridge in the distance.
A fine art print of this lighthouse is available for purchase.
