Juneau, Alaska, Photo Album
Steller Sea lions (Eumetopias jubatus) rest on a buoy in front of the Point Retreat Lighthouse, at the north end of 90-mile-long Admiralty Island. The first lighthouse was built at that location in 1904 (the 10th to be built in Alaska), and the current structure dates to 1924. It has been owned by the Alaska Lighthouse Association since 2002, and in 2004 a new lantern room was built, as the original had been removed, probably in 1973 when it became unmanned, and couldn't be found.
