Climbing to the Top

We had most of day, free in Cleveland.  We decided to take a slow drive along the cost of Lake Erie and see where the slow roads took us.  We stumbled across the Fairport Harbor Lighthouse.  This lighthouse sits atop a hill, overlooking the lake, right at the end of the main street in Fairport.  94 years ago, it was replaced by a more modern lighthouse on a jetty at the entrance to the inlet.  There is a small but interesting museum, run by volunteers, and the lighthouse is open to be climbed.  And climb it we did.  To old fat guys all the way to the top.  

Climbing up or climbing down, which is harder? 


  1. up! but coming down would make my vertigo kick in. and no handrails - WTH!

  2. I find up easier. Because I can take the steps 2 or 3 at a time. Spirals make that a bit more difficult though. Haven’t been to Cleveland for years. Used to love those meandering drives. Chagrine Falls! We’ve got some antiques we bought there in the ‘80s

  3. I'm impressed! I wouldn't undertake that climb.

  4. Did they have the lens and do your recall which Fresnyl rating it was?

    1. The lens is in the museum, no idea what the fresnyl rating would be
