Lighthouses of the Straits of Mackinac
Some of these photos were taken during a lighthouse tour during the North American Light House Festival held in Mackinaw City, Michigan. The tours were so popular the Shepler's Mackinac Island Ferry now offers several tours on scattered days through the summer and other photos were taken during those tours.

Old Mackinac Point Light (1892) - Mackinaw City near foot of the Mackinac Bridge.
This lighthouse remained in operation until 1957, when the Bridge made it no longer necessary.
It reopened to the public in June of 2004.
Cheboygan Crib Light (1910) was moved to this location in Turner Park from a crib off
the mouth of the Cheboygan River.
