On day three we took the Sandy six miles east along Rock Harbor to the last fishery on Isle Royale. Volunteers stay at the site and greet you and give you a brief tour. Then you can walk an easy trail a quarter of a mile to the Lighthouse. Go up 63 steps for the view. That said, hope for... More

He was then in his 70's and lived in the fishery in the summer with his wife. Subsequently, she passed away-I was on the island when she became ill and... More
