Bodie Island Lighthouse Fresnel Lens

We walked up all 219 steps to the top of the lighthouse only to hear the park ranger alerting us that the wind had strengthened to 43 miles per hour. Since the wind was too strong to go out to the observation platform, we instead got to see the first order fresnel lens. It takes two hours to dust and can be seen for 21 miles away.
