A pleasant hike near Split Rock

We were very lucky to be taken to see Split Rock Lighthouse by Jeanne and her dad. It is a really amazing place indeed.

I was amused by this abandoned flip flop – I can imagine it would have been difficult to see.

The view was pretty spectacular from down below.

Tom took us on a little hike and we got a nicer view from above. It was interesting to hear about the campsite up there and see the lockers for food storage so that bears would not be attracted to the sites and see the carts that people used to haul their supplies to camp.

We got to the top and it was interesting to hear about the mystery surrounding this fire place. It was said that it was built by a man called Frank Day who was keen to impress his love by building a house up there and the fireplace was the first thing he built. The woman he was trying to impress wasn’t all that impressed and she called off the wedding.

It was nice to stop awhile and take in the incredible view.
