Home to two lighthouses, North Head and Cape Disappointment, Cape Disappointment State Park sits on the edge of the Pacific coast in Washington marking the entrance to the Columbia River. Ferocious winds and rough waters approaching the river mouth made it necessary to have two lighthouses in such close proximity. For one keepers wife, its said the winds were so ferocious and deafening that she threw herself over the edge of the cliff and now reportedly haunts the area. Come and see for yourself if the place is haunted or just enjoy the breathtaking views and the lush old-growth forest.
