Potawatomi Lighthouse - Rock Island, WI also known as the Rock Island Light, is located in Rock Island State Park, on Rock Island in Door County, Wisconsin. Lit in 1836, it is the oldest light station in Wisconsin and on Lake Michigan.

Finally, the chance presented itself to me.  My husband suggested that we take our boat from Green Bay up to Rock Island, so we did.

We docked and quickly grabbed our firewood for the night before hiking the 1-1/2 mile pathway through the woods to the lighthouse.  Perfect timing, right before sunset.  We had a chance to walk the grounds and for me to take a few pictures before night set in.
