Windpoint Lighthouse

The Wind Point, Wisconsin shoreline is much different than the Indiana and Michigan side of Lake Michigan - it's much rockier, making it difficult to wade out into the lake for a photograph. The submerged, algae covered rocks are very slippery, and the waves hide the bottom of the lake from view, making the walk out rather difficult.

While I've visited this light station numerous times, I've never been here in warm weather, so the Lake was always frozen - hiding the rocky shore.

There is a small museum inside the old fog house, containing a handful of relics, some beautiful model ships and souvenirs. The area is beautifully maintained with flower gardens and a fountain or two, and the rocky shore is a great place to find fossils and interesting rocks.
