The Beach on Lake Superior - Too much Fog To See The...



Endangered Piping Plover - Wish we could see one sometime!

Our second stop of the day was the Whitefish Point Light Station. It is the oldest operating lighthouse on Lake Superior and has been in continuous service since 1861. We walked around the station and the grounds and even wandered down on the beach. It reminded us of the beaches in Washington because of all of the huge pieces of driftwood - sometimes full trees.

Inside the Visitor Center they had a lot of exhibits and the one that caught my eye was of the Piping Plover. It is an endangered species and I would love to get a picture of one that was running around instead of an exhibit!

On to our next stop for the day - Point Iroquois Light.
