A Lighthouse of MichiganWest

61.5 Washington Island Harbor (WI 23W)
June 10, 2006

We finished up our Michigan Cruise with a stop at Washington Island (had 12 passengers that needed a pick up). As we pulled into harbor, Ken Wardius (co-author of The Lighthouses of Wisconsin) commented that the light shown on the left is not in many directories of lights, and it should be. GLLKA

While it looks like a simple channel marker, you will note that it does have a solar operated light on the top, it is a fixed installation (not a buoy) and it has a classic "day mark" which also serves as the channel mark. On the other hand, if it is a light, it probably qualifies for "one of the ugliest".
