Presque Isle is between the two bigger towns of Alpena to the south and Rogers City to the north. The light houses are sandwiched between Grand Lake and Lake Huron. Highway 23 runs between Rogers City and Alpena. Take Road 638 east from the north end of Grand Lake and follow the signs to the lighthouses.
This was the second time I have traveled to these two lighthouses trying to get some good photographs. I feel like the photograph here was a good one but I still haven't had any luck at the newer lighthouse. I have always gone early in the morning when few people are around.
There are two lighthouses in the area. This is called the Old Presque Isle Lighthouse. It sets closer to Lake Huron than it's newer neighbor. I hiked into the lighthouse in the dark and waited for twilight and the first rays of the sun to hit the upper part of the lighthouse tower. The beautiful pink of the horizon complimented the white tower.
