"September Gale" Eagle Harbor Lighthouse - Eagle Harbor , Michigan

Newer Older

My wife and I were in the keweenaw peninsula for a color tour when a storm blew in. The lakes-shore drive had many trees down across the road, keeping the road crews busy. We made it to Eagle Harbor and managed to get some photos. 60 mph gusts.
