Next we stopped at the Au Sable Lighthouse. It was about a 2 mile roundtrip hike out to the lighthouse. We went down on the beach just before reaching the lighthouse so we could see the remains of some of the famous shipwrecks from this area. Below is just one of several ship skeletons we saw along the beach.
Although they don't use the old style lanterns anymore, they still do use a light, it's just solar powered now. Here I am standing next to the current light on top of the lighthouse.
Next stop after the logslide was Grand Marias. This building has been rebuilt, but is the original design.
As you can see, it was built in 1895.
This Pickle Barrel House is on the National Historic Registry.
And this was all in the first 60 miles of our trip. The remaining miles was simply getting back by the highway. We had 5 cars of people caravaning on this day.
