Cleveland’s Frozen Lighthouse

Today’s Photo: Cleveland’s Frozen Lighthouse

Today’s photo of the West Pier Lighthouse that’s encased in ice was taken last winter from Whiskey Island.  It reminds me of something out of a Dr. Seuss book. Constructed in 1911, the lighthouse was automated in 1965 and still flashes its beacon to alert ships every five seconds. The original Fresnel lens in now on exhibit at the nearby Great Lakes Science Center.
