Split Rock Lighthouse all lit up

I took the kids and my mom up to the Split Rock Lighthouse on Oct. 1st for it's lighting ceremony and had a blast!!! Typically the lighthouse is only lit up once a year on the anniversary of the sinking of the Edmund Fitzgerald - a mega lake freighter that sank on November 10, 1975 with all 29 hands onboard into the massive Lake Superior. This year though, being the 100th anniversary of the lighthouse, they lit it up the first Friday of every month until this coming November 10th. I am not a huge fan of the cold weather on the big lake so I wanted to get there before November rolled around, and plus it was kind of a once in a lifetime thing too!! You wouldn't believe how many other people had the same idea!!!

    Angie! This is sooooo awesome. I just took a picture while we were up there too! I'll have to post that next. This is so nice. I want to get one with the light house all lite up. I will have to go in November or wait till next year I guess. It will make for a real neat tip either way.

    PS we camped on Brule Lake near the 1999 BWCA blow down. It is sooooo big!

    Wow, this is stunning. I love the purple hue in the photo and the processing is great. Do you sell your photos Angie?
  • Angiezpics 5y

    No Christopher, I don't sell my photos yet.
    Maybe when I get a bit better I'll think about it. Thanks for the compliment though. :)
