Charlevoix Light, Charlevoix
Todd Reed visualized how Charlevoix’s lighthouse might look three hours and 150 miles before he arrived there. “The fresh coat of ice on the Charlevoix pier from yesterday’s north wind and waves looks even better than I envisioned. I am loving being right here, right now in Northern Michigan,” he wrote at the time.
