Lighthouses of Lake Michigan

Travel on the Great Lakes can be treacherous. 
 As early as the beginning of the 19th century, lighthouse construction was commissioned to guide vessels around dangerous points and into safe harbors.

On the Lake Michigan leg of my 
1000-Mile Great Lakes Walk 
I came across some wonderful lights that guided ships long ago.

I have completed 987 miles of my journey and will finish my hike along the Niagara River 
-- culminating at Niagara Falls -- 
in October!
