The weather report calling for clear skies and possible northern lights- Aurora Borealis led to an impromptu camping trip to Tahquamenon Falls State Park. Carl is an avid Aurora seeker and photographer and camping here is more pleasant than driving the 1 1/2 hours home at 4 am after being up all night. We were lucky to find a camping site available at the park and promptly reserved it before we left. Being the day before the Labor Day weekend, we were not sure what kind of availability there would be.
We arrived at the State Park around 3 pm and after unhooking the trailer promptly took off to Crisp Point Lighthouse. The weather was great and it was an area I had never seen. Crisp Point is only about 22 miles from the park however it is all gravel roads one lane roads so slow going, but so worth the ride. Just a side note here. The gravel roads are marked but you have to pay attention. Just last year two women were lost in the same area.
This light was build in 1903 and decommissioned in 1993. It is currently owned by Luce County however leased to the Crisp Point Light Historical Society who in charge of maintaining, operating, and restoring the light.
Lake Superior. There was a bit of a breeze but still very comfortable on the beach.
