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.
