South Haven Lighthouse Laden with Ice
South Haven, Michigan
Sunday was a great day for a drive to see the sites around the Michigan shore of Lake Michigan.
Upon reaching South Haven, we noticed the lighthouse was covered in ice, five feet thick in some places! Previous high winds and high waves coupled with very low temperatures coated the lighthouse, catwalk and breakwater in pure ice.
Luckily, a fresh snowfall made it possible to walk all the way out to the lighthouse without slipping into the lake - still dangerous though.
