Split Rock Lighthouse - a return trip

Since last night was cloud covered for the lighting of the Split Rock Lighthouse Beacon, I took another trip to the light this evening for the full moon rise.  While there were some clouds, the colors of a twilight moonrise at Split Rock were warm and inviting.    

The best part is, there will be another full moon in a month when snow will be blanketing the rocks and trees.  It just doesn't get any better.

Split Rock Lighthouse - Annual Edmund Fitzgerald Memorial Beacon Lighting

Every year on November 10, the light at Split Rock Lighthouse is lit in memory of the 29 men lost aboard the Edmund Fitzgerald and all the other vessels lost on the Great Lakes.

In 1975, a 729-foot freighter, the Edmund Fitzgerald, left Superior, Wis., headed for Detroit with 26,000 tons of taconite. Enroute, the ship encountered one of the November gales for which Lake Superior is notorious.
The Nov. 10 storm that doomed the Edmund Fitzgerald was matched perhaps by the crew's overconfidence in technology and underestimation of the lake's fury. Although not far from calmer waters when the storm hit, Capt. Ernest McSorley headed northeast across Lake Superior, seeking what he thought would be the shelter of the Canadian shore and eventually Whitefish Bay.
Edmund Fitzgerald PaintingThe Arthur M. Anderson, sailing 10 miles behind the Fitzgerald, soon received reports that the ship was listing, and at 7:10 p.m. heard Capt. McSorely's final message: "We're holding our own." The Anderson lost the Fitzgerald's image on its radar screens at 7:25 p.m.
Additional information about the sinking of the Edmund Fitzgerald can be found at http://cimss.ssec.wisc.edu/wxwise/fitz.html
