Wood End Light

    Wood End Light

    Near the very tip of Cape Cod, Wood End Lighthouse is
    now an unmanned light that sounds a horn to alert for fog.
    The lighthouse was built in 1872 and the adjacent oil house
    was built in 1896.  This remote light can only be accessed by
    a long hike.  If you go, be prepared for hot sun,
    biting insects and no drinking water.
