    Where 2 Have Fun in Minnesota Presents

    Split Rock Lighthouse

    Split Rock Lighthouse State Park is located on Hwy 61 north of Duluth heading up the North Shore. One of Minnesota's most scenic drives and my personal favorite! It's spectacular and we want to show it to you!


     

    Such a beauty resting on the cliff

    Camping and hiking trails are awesome!

    Lake Superior below Split Rock

    A scene through my shades ...neat!

    same scene .. no shades

    A distant view of the lighthouse.

    Nice rocky angle with the island coming in on the right.

    The lighthouse, Lake Superior and island in tall scene.

    Split Rock Lighthouse closeup.
    You will need to purchase a day pass to the lighthouse or a Minnesota State Parks sticker to drive down to the beach area where I took most of the photos. Tours are given daily inside the lighthouse, this is something you should see. I did not post any photos of the lighthouse inside because I had to leave you something to see ...right? I could spend all day on the rocky beach......

    "The Wreck of the Edmund Fitzgerald"
    by Frederick Stonehouse
    lyrics by Gordon Lightfoot
    The legend lives on from the Chippewa on down
    from the lake they called Gitche Gumee
    The lake it is said never gives up her dead
    when the skies of November turn gloomy
    With a load of iron ore 26,000 tons more
    then the Edmund Fitzgerald weighed empty
    that good ship and true was a bone to be chewed
    when the gales of November came early

    The ship was the pride of the American side
    comin' back from some mill in Wisconsin
    As the big freighters go it was bigger than most
    with a crew and good captain well seasoned
    concluding some terms with a couple steel firms
    when they left fully loaded for Cleveland
    and late that night when the ships bell rang
    could it be the north wind they'd been feelin'
    The wind in the wires made a tattletale sound
    and a wave broke over the railing
    and every man knew as the captain did too
    'twas the witch of November come stealin'
    The dawn came late and the breakfast had to wait
    when the gales of November came slashin'
    When afternoon came it was freezin' rain
    in the face of a hurricane west wind

    When suppertime came the old cook came on deck
    sayin' "fellas it's too rough to feed ya"
    At seven p.m. a main hatchway caved in
    he said " fellas it's been good to know ya"
    The captain wired in he had water comin' in
    and the good ship and crew was in peril
    and later that night when 'is lights went out of sight
    came the wreck of the Edmund Fitzgerald

    Does anyone know where the love of god goes
    when the waves turn the minutes to hours?
    The searchers all say they'd have made Whitefish Bay
    if they'd put fifteen more miles behind 'em
    They might have split up or they might have capsized
    they may have broke deep and took water
    and all that remains is the faces and names
    of the wives and the sons and the daughters

    Lake Huron rolls Superior sings
    in the rooms of her ice-water mansion
    Old Michigan steams like a young mans dreams
    the island and bays are for sportsmen
    and farther below Lake Ontario
    takes in what Lake Erie can send her
    and the iron boats go as the mariners all know
    with the gales of November remembered

    In a musty old hall in Detroit they prayed
    in the maritime sailors' cathedral
    the churh bell chimed 'til it rang 29 times
    for each man on the Edmund Fitzgerald
    The legend lives on from the chippewa on down
    of the big lake they call Gitche Gumee
    Superior they said never gives up her dead
    when the gales of November come early ...
