On a recent trip to Whitefish Point, I wanted to go out to the old Vermilion Point life-saving station that sits along the shores of Lake Superior between Crisp Point lighthouse and Whitefish Point Lighthouse. There is a road a few miles north of Paradise that takes you out to Vermilion. Well, actually it’s more of a sandy logging path than a road. After heading down the trail about 15 minutes I finally came to a sign that said Vermilion Point Nature Preserve, and I knew I was getting close. I went down the road a little more, and then all of a sudden, the road was completely under water. I think they had gotten a lot of rain, and the marsh next to the road overflowed, covering the road with water for a far as I could see. I guess I am not getting any pics of the life-saving station on this trip. I will just have to go back again, but now I know I need to go in the summer when it’s dry. I am disappointed when I can’t visit the places I want too, but without going out and exploring, you will never learn what you don’t know.
Some of my trips get kind of expensive and calendar sales helps me with those trips to take photos and research stories, it would really mean a lot to me if you took a look at my calendars and shirts HERE
