Split Rock Lighthouse........
The featured photo today is of our little model of the Split Rock lighthouse. The real lighthouse sits atop a large rock formation along the shore line of Lake Superior in Minnesota. My wife and I have painted and drawn at the location for many summers.
The story behind it being built includes the lack of roads to get there at the time made it hard to get the supplies on the site. Everything was shipped in by boat and an cable system was built to move the brick and mortar up the very long, steep incline.
