The Point Clark Lighthouse National Historic site lies covered under a blanket of snow, looking out over a frozen Lake Huron. At one time, a lonely lightkeeper would tend to the property and keep the light shining despite the harsh conditions. Nowadays, the light is automated and the lives of the people who once maintained these aids to navigation are remembered through museums like the one in Point Clark. (Chris Bianco Photo)
