The Pigeon Point Lighthouse Letterbox

This letterbox commemorates one of the most beautiful light stations on the Pacific Coast. The dramatic structure was built in 1872, in an area rich in rugged scenery. See http://www.parks.ca.gov/default.asp?page_id=533 for info.
First, a little math. The weight of the original Fresnel lens used here divided by 200 = "Y". The height of the lighthouse divided by 46 = "X".
Begin your search on State Highway 1, at the entrance to the light station. Drive "X" miles south on Hwy. 1 to a dirt road on the right. From the gate with the "no parking" signs, walk "Y" paces toward the beach. Inspect the base of a prominent fence post on your right.
