Cape Hatteras Lighthouse

We also visited the Cape Hatteras lighthouse while we were on vacation, which is the tallest in the nation. There are 268 cast iron steps to the top ... 267 more than I wanted to make, but Ryan & Emma scooted right up to the top while the other 3 of us checked out the visitor's center! The lady taking the money looked at Emma a little skeptically and said you had to be a certain height to climb to the top. Emma went over to the measuring stick and stretched her little bones best she could to show that she was plenty tall enough. Ha! The lady still didn't act like she thought Emma could make it, but we assured her that she was more than able. Which of course she was!

The park ranger was nice enough to take their picture at the top!
