Steps to Mission Point Lighthouse

leave a comment »


If  you follow my blog or spend any time looking around you will notice in time that I like to photograph lighthouses.

This interest is of recent vintage. I’ve long had some interest in lighthouses, but it has accelerated in recent years. Whenever possible, I visit a lighthouse along the Great Lakes.

Shown is Mission Point lighthouse, located at the end of Old Mission Point, which juts out into Grand Traverse Bay, which itself empties into Lake Michigan.

There is a nice beach just steps away from this lighthouse. A website devoted to Mission Point describes it as a classic piece of Michigan history.

It was removed from service as a lighthouse in 1933 so today is is a tourist. Nonetheless, I imagine that many mariners have made note of it as they passed nearby.

This image was made in August 2010 and was scanned from a slide. I have not been back to Mission Point since.
