A two mile walk from the nearest parking area, the Big Sable Point Lighthouse rises over the seemingly endless expanse of dune and beach. Built in 1867, the light stands 112 feet tall, is built of brick, and clad in cast iron It is one of the most recognizable lighthouses on Lake Michigan.
We followed the marked path to the lighthouse, but decided to walk along the beach on the return trip. On this particular summer morning, we only passed one couple on the beach - pretty much had the place to ourselves.
