Eagle Harbor Lighthouse

Eagle Harbor lighthouse is located on the Keweenaw Peninsula in Upper Michigan. It sits on the rocky coastline of Lake Superior It is said to be the most visited and photographed lighthouse on the Keweenaw Peninsula. In the summer of 2013, I traveled up the Keweenaw Peninsula and made a stop at the Eagle Harbor lighthouse. It is a beautiful lighthouse and well preserved. I visited the light, took a tour of the lighthouse and grounds and of course took lots of photographs. The photo above was taken from across the harbor. As you travel around the town of Eagle Harbor there are lots of places to get great photos of the lighthouse.
This photo was taken while I was touring the grounds. It gives you a close up view of the light tower.
I climbed out on some rocks on the side of the lighthouse to capture this view of Eagle Harbor. To read more about the lighthouses I visited on the Keweenaw Peninsula stop by my page at Keweenaw Peninsula Lighthouses
