Geocache Description:


Also located along Lake Superior, but this time in Wisconsin, is the Apostle Islands National Lakeshore which was created in 1970.

Apostle Islands consists of 21 islands and 12 miles of mainland that offer both spectacular views and a glimpse into the history of the area. Aside from the natural beauty and growth of the area, visitors pay special attention to the sandstone sea caves and the 6 lighthouses that are included inside the Lakeshore’s boundaries.


Probably the most visited lighthouse is located on Sand Island. It stands 44 feet tall and was among the first to be lit in the early 1920’s to aid in ship navigation through the turbulent Superior waters.


Visitors to the area might recognize the coloring of the Brownstone(sandstone) from buildings in their hometown. In the late 1800’s, much of this rock was quarried and shipped to major cities like Chicago, Milwaukee and Minneapolis for use in construction of many of those locations landmarks.
