Today I decided that I would post about one of our first lighthouse trips which was to the North Shore of Lake Superior. Some of you might not realize that Minnesota has lighthouses. Here are 3 lighthouses in the Duluth Harbor.
Here are a couple of pictures of the lift bridge in the Harbor.
Up the shore a ways is the Two Harbors Lighthouse which is a Bed and Breakfast. We have stayed at this B&B several times with friends from the Twin Cities that we met there the first time we stayed.
If you want more information on the B&B you can go to http://lighthousebb.org/
You can see the ore boats pulling into the harbor and loading the iron ore from the B&B
Farther up the shore is the Split Rock Lighthouse which sits high on a bluff above Lake Superior.
There is a small breakwater lighthouse at Grand Marais but I don't have a picture of it. All lighthouses are different depending where they are built and each one had it's own signal. Most lighthouses are no longer in use because of the advanced navigation systems on ships. But, you are still able to visit many of them.
I hope you enjoyed the pictures of the lighthouses on the North Shore of Lake Superior.
Thanks for stopping by,
