Repair Trip to Granite Island on January 11, 2005
Here are a few of the 200 pictures taken on Tuesday January 11, 2005's adventurous trip to
Granite Island to repair the power for the webcams. The Coast Guard has
closed up shop for the winter and all other boats are high and dry. A good
reason for concern as the 30 foot Zodiac broke through the ice out of the
harbor and then five miles off shore both engines died. Switching tanks
solved the problem. Cramp-ons assisted our ability to climb the sheer ice
covered rock to the lighthouse as the sharp spikes kept us from sliding
backward into the icy Lake Superior water.
The day was beautiful and the sun peaked out in the afternoon highlighting
our shots of nature's ice sculptures.
