LA 7. Pass a l'Outre Lighthouse, Louisiana
After Hurricane Katrina, does this lighthouse still exist?
We believe it probably does, as some feet of it is buried is buried in the muck.

All these photos can be ordered, use the state # (ME12) for example
and the A, B or C, if there is more than one.



Pass a l'Outre Lighthouse

 This lighthouse is in a very isolated place in the mouth of the Mississippi.  There was once a keepers house here.  I hate to think how hot, muggy and buggy it would be in these swamps in the summertime. According to David Cipra's book "Lighthouses, Lightships and the Gulf of Mexico", when this lighthouse was discontinued in 1930, its light was less than three quarters of it's original height because of settling in the Mississippi River mud.
 We shot this photo from a seaplane we chartered out of Houma, LA. in 1995.
