A few weeks back I had a day off so I decided to head north to take some pictures of the fall color. I ended up on the north shore of Lake Superior so I decided to head over to the Split Rock Lighthouse to take some pics. Now I know that many of you come to this blog because you love nature, like I do, but I have always had a fascination with lighthouses so when ever I get a chance I like to stop up at Split Rock.
These two pics where shot from different angles. The first pic was taken from below, down by the lake. The shot above was taken from one of the neighboring bluffs. Imagine what life was like for the lighthouse crew back before there were roads in the area. People as well as supplies traveled to the lighthouse via boat across the lake and then had to be hoisted up the cliff face. With my fear of heights I probably would not have made any visits back then.
