The St. Joseph Michigan Lighthouse
The St. Joseph, Michigan pier has two range lights that guide boaters to the harbor. Line both lights up and you're heading directly into the harbor. The outer pierhead light is shown here in the foreground. It was built in 1906 and is constructed of steel. A year later, the inner light was completed. This lighthouse is almost identical to the lighthouse in Michigan City, Indiana; no doubt it was designed by the same architect.
Sunday was a great day to finally explore these lights up close.
