The stairs winding up to the lamp room at McGulpin Lighthouse are those traditional heavy metal spiral variety. An architectural appreciation indeed. This view is looking up from the main floor all the way to the deck of the lamp room. To enter there, you have to duck through a small hole. The view from the top is fairly amazing, and currently you’re permitted to walk outside of the lamp room to the surrounding decking.
