A Lighthouse of Superior

60 Porphyry Point (ON 83)
July 31, 2004

Once again, a light you can only get to by boat. It's also in Canadian Waters, so we shouldn't have been there. Named for the black volcanic rock it’s perched on, the lighthouse has watched over the entrance to Black Bay since 1873. Only the second Canadian light station established on the great lake, the McKay’s have tended the light for three generations. ARLHS # CAN 584
