A Crisp Salute

Here is another photo from our trip to the Crisp Lighthouse located in the northern shoreline of the Upper Peninsula of Michigan. The Crisp Lighthouse is located on the shores of Lake Superior. The 22 mile trek on County and logging roads during the rainy season is an interesting drive to say the least. The flag pole combined with the lighthouse made for a great photo opportunity. Historical foot note: The location of the lighthouse area has beautiful "new growth" stand of pine trees that hopefully will be the beginnings the next Great Pine forests of Michigan. During the early seventeen and eighteen hundreds through to the early 1900's tens of thousands of acres of "Old Growth" 200+ hundred year old virgin White pine were harvested in Michigan mainly from a line north of Muskegon. The timber helped build the the forts and communities of the Northeast. Millions of board feet of lumber, some shipped out of the Port of Muskegon, helped rebuild Chicago after the Great Fire on October 8, 1871. It is estimated that only 7% of the original forest that covered the United States still remains. :) Gary
