The Presque Isle Light house is located on a strip of land along Lake Huron between Alpena and Rogers City in Michigan. Built in 1870, it is 113 feet above the limestone foundation. The light keeper's cottage is at the base and now serves as a museum. The lighthouse was automated in 1970 and is still in service.
In 1957 when the Mackinac bridge opened, navigators started using the lights on the bridge to guide their ships through the straights. The lighthouse was retired and the land around it was turned into a public park. It has been restored and is open for tours.
We made the most wonderful discovery last weekend. We found the Tunnel of Trees (M-119) and we were fortunate to see about 17 miles of Trillium in bloom. Not only were they beautiful to look at - they smelled wonderful. I have never seen such a massive display of wildflowers.
