Ketchikan, Alaska, Photo Album
New Eddystone Rock is a glacier-carved, 237 foot (72 meter) high pillar of basalt in Behm Canal, originally formed by a volcanic vent millions of years ago. It was named in 1793 by Captain Vancouver because of its resemblance to the lighthouse rock off Plymouth, England (Smeaton's lighthouse).
