Christmas. Stairs???

Well, this is the beach in Christmas… just West of Munising on M-28. Not really much of a beach. Somewhat hidden drive off the highway turns to sand just before the light / beacon. The concrete steps are kinda neat. Not sure what they’re from. I’m sure I could look it up, but perhaps someone could leave a comment instead to give some more information. I’m guessing they were moved here from someplace else.

Here’s a map to the location. And Shoreline Viewer

Beach. Beacon.

    It is the stairs for the front range light of the west entrance to Munising Harbor. The building has been removed and is now used as a residence in Munising. It was of the same design as the lighthouse in the East Channel that is across from Sand Point.

    In the picture behind you is the Tourist Park Beach, which is great for walking, agates and “slag” rocks from the old iron smelter at Bay Furnace. The beach starts just around the corner behind you and ends at Williams Landing, the dock for the Grand Island Ferry. Grand Island also has 4 main beaches; Trout Bay, North Beach, Mather Lodge and Murrays Bay. They are beautiful like Miners Beach, isolated, and you can tent camp near them. They are far and away my favorite beaches. There are also many isolated beaches along the Island that you can only get to by water.

      Dave, thanks for your comments. Good to know the story behind the stairs. I also hope to make it to Grand Island some day. That would be a lot of fun, and it looks beautiful.
