Photo By: Mike Kline

This month’s beautiful cover of Michigan’s Grand Haven inner and outer pier lighthouses is from a photo taken just after sunset by Mike Kline / Notkalvin Photography. Mike is also the administrator of the Michigan Lighthouses community page on Facebook. The Grand Haven Pier Lighthouses are now owned by the City of Grand Haven, which is famous for its annual Coast Guard Festival that will be held this year from July 25 to August 3.
