These Point Iroquois Lighthouse pictures were a joy to take. As you know I'm an avid flower fan. And anytime I come across the opportunity to enjoy two of my favorite things, my spirit smiles inside.
If you love traveling as much as we do, there has to be something that is always a special treat. Dan's is touching base with as many lighthouses as we can.
I've always loved lighthouse pictures and stories. I'm reminded of a favorite song of my when I was a teen. The Wreck of The Edmond Fitzgerald by Gordon Lightfoot. Such a spine tingling tale of life and loss.
I won't dwell on the song here because the only real commonality it s the fact that Point Iroquois is located off Lake Superior.
You are invited to climb the to the top of the 65 foot tower. Once there you can view Canada, The Lake, Ocean going freighters plying Lake Superior and the river as they go through the Soo Locks.
Be sure and visit the museum where volunteers will gladly answer your questions and share what they know.
Point Iroquois Lighthouse was retired to be a historical museum and visitors center. The building and grounds were retired after 107 years of service. You can read more at the official Hiawatha National Forest Website. Read for yourself the programs offered here.
A visit to the grounds of my lighthouses is like a walk into a living history book. You'll find stories of good times and sometimes not so good times. For sure it is a history you will remember for a long time. Point Iroquois Lighthouse is open to the public and they offer events.
If you visit their official site, be sure and check out the Learning Center Links. They have informational articles for 2015. We didn't go into the museum while visiting. The lighthouse visit was a quick stop for us. There is a phone number you can call for more information .
I know one thing for certain. It is a very popular place to visit. There were visitors everywhere we turned. It gets my vote. Next time I'll climb that 65 foot stairway to the top of the tower....
I really wish we had, had more time to hang out. But I'm grateful to get so many awesome pictures and to actually be on the shores of Lake Superior. It certainly beats any geography books I've ever read...
