It was the lighthouse, of course, that caught my attention. Those important beacons of light work even through the internet, apparently. I saw one of Gregory Bozik's photos, and was drawn in immediately. A Michigan photographer, he's got an incredible eye for sharing the beauty of our state - and, of course, of our deep love of the Great Lakes.

The Minnesota side of Lake Superior’s North Shore is full of iconic places, but one of the best-known has to be Split Rock Lighthouse, part of Split Rock Lighthouse State Park.

Visiting Lake Michigan lighthouses in the winter

by Dominique-Midwest Guest / Jan 23, 2014 /

There isn't much that I like more than visiting lighthouses during the summer. The sun, the sand, and sunny skies lend themselves to long lazy days walking along the beach, sun bathing, boating, and building sand castles.

We're lucky here in Michigan, where more than 110 lighthouses dot the coasts of the Great Lakes that surround our state's Lower and Upper Peninsulas, and I'm especially fortunate to have visited many of these historic beauties over the years.
