The Restless Viking: 14 Mile Point Lighthouse, Michigan

This article was originally published on July 15, 2021 on The Restless Viking website.

On a remote stretch of the Keweenaw Peninsula, in the upper peninsula of Michigan, stands the remains of a lighthouse that provided a speck of light for the long dark stretch of shoreline.

The 14 Mile Point Lighthouse is remote. Thirteen miles north of Ontonagon and miles from any public road. The roads leading to the lighthouse have long over grown.

Join Danny and I as we leave Misery Bay, on Thor, for a boat trip to the long abandoned lighthouse. Learn a little about its history, the fire and its unique features.

Chuck and Martha Hayden, aka The Viking and Poppins, enjoy going on adventures off the beaten path. They also like to share their explorations with others. The Viking is a retired expedition leader while Poppins is a retired teacher. The two offer independent views of their journeys showcasing places, people, and cultures as they explore the world.

  1. Hi – I enjoy your postings, but please use the proper form of personal pronouns. “Me” and “I” are the main offenders. You wouldn’t say “Join I as we….” so you also wouldn’t say “Join Danny and I….”

    But even with the errors, I’ll keep reading. Having taken a few motorcycle trips around Lake Superior, and spending time in remote places like Eagle Harbor, I enjoy revisiting the places with you.
