When they canceled their planned vacation tour of Outer Banks lighthouses because of the this year’s Covid-19 Pandemic, Nicole Ashley and her husband, Jason, took a social distancing tour of lighthouses in their home state of Michigan’s Upper Peninsula, where they saw some remote lighthouses such as Gull Rock, Manitou Island and, as shown here, Stannard Rock Lighthouse.
Lighthouse Digest subscribers Glenn and Carol Moore of Wisconsin picked up a pizza to eat at Maine’s West Quoddy Lighthouse on their 2014 visit to New England.
The Editor’s Family
Lighthouse Digest editor Tim Harrison with his son and grandsons enjoyed a visit in 2018, to Little River Lighthouse to view the work that had been done by the Friends of Little River Light over the previous 15 years while Tim was in charge of the group. The lighthouse is now cared for by a former light keeper Terry Rowden.
When she was 81 years old we published Helen Marschner’s letter about her visit to climb Michigan’s remote Crisp Point Lighthouse. Now at 86, she has climbed to the top of Michigan’s 1866 Peninsula Point Lighthouse. She is shown here at the top of the tower with her three grandchildren. The Peninsula Point Lighthouse is within the bounds of the Hiawatha National Forest and was restored in 2018 by volunteers from the National Forest and HistoriCorps.
