Lake Superior Lighthouses Volume II
Four lighthouses were built on Isle Royale: Rock Harbor in 1855;
Menagerie Island in 1875; Passage Island in 1882 and Rock of Ages in
1908. Now if you've still got your Lake Superior map out, look north
from the Keweenaw: that island you see out there is the largest island
in the Great Lakes: Isle Royale, and it's a National Park.
In the summer of '93, I spent over 30 days on the the
Island doing my tape photography and research. My first trip out was in
early May. I hitched a ride on the US Coast Guard Cutter Sundew and
while the ATN technicians did their work at the lighthouses, I did my
video and photography. Nice stuff, and had a great time.
