May 9 – Update from the opening crew

Arrival! Lots of gear on the beach needing to be carried up to the lighthouse.

The opening crew checked up on the solar system….it weathered the winter well. Thanks again to the Great Lakes Lightkeepers Association for donating major components.

The team also worked to upgrade the lake-water filtering system to be used by volunteer teams.

The team has also done some exploring…things that can only be seen before vegetation takes over. Here are remnants of one of the early pump systems.

The wreck that had been visible since 2021 is still present, though somewhat buried compared to prior years.
