A little way down the trail I was able to get the following shot of Au Sable lighthouse, which was my destination.
Then I pointed the camera to the east to get the following shot of the Grand Sable banks.
Around half way down the trail, after descending down "the hill that never ends," I spotted this carin piled on one of the bridges. The rocks on the bottom are Jacobesville sandstone, with a granite on top.
As I was getting closer to the lighthouse, I noticed this freighter going by. It probably won't be too much longer before they will close the locks at Sault Saint Marie.
The last stretch of the trail takes you along the beach.
