Discover Lake Michigan's Beaver Island

  #

People come to Beaver Island for its abundant nature and solitude and much of what the island offers is free. With over 100 miles of scenic roads, old two-track trails and beaches, it is ideal for hiking and biking. Pristine woods welcome nature lovers for bird watching and photography, as well as sportsmen looking or hunting and fishing opportunities.

Visitors can expect to discover a wealth of ecological resources, including nature preserves and state land available for walking and exploring. Approximately 35 percent of the Island – located about 30 miles north of Charlevoix in Northern Lake Michigan – is state forest land.  more...

Finding Minnesota: Split Rock Lighthouse

  #
A series of shipwrecks more than a century ago led to what is now one of Minnesota's most famous landmarks.

Split Rock Lighthouse was built to guide ships into shore before they had modern navigational tools. This year, the old lighthouse celebrates 100 years along Lake Superior.

It may seem strange in this age of satellite navigation to think about how crucial that one bright beacon used to be. But before sonar or radar, ships on the lake were guided by primitive compasses. And even they were often distorted by the iron the ships carried.  more...
