Lighthouses of the Western Great Lakes

The shorelines of Lake Superior and Lake Michigan once included hundreds of lighthouses. The wild and remote coastlines of Isle Royal National Park and those of the slightly more accessible Apostle Islands National Park are just two examples of the rigors of lighthouse keeping on the Great Lakes. The waters of the lakes can become almost as vicious as the waters of the open ocean, and have caused many shipwrecks; the most famous of which is the Edmund Fitzgerald.
