The East Pierhead Light Upon Return

The East Pierhead Light Upon Return

I had an unexpected trip aboard the research vessel W. G. Jackson this afternoon, watching the scientists gather samples of water, sediment and plankton. It was a great day for a cruise on Lake Michigan, and the scientific work made it an interesting afternoon as well.

Owned and operated by Grand Valley State University, the W. G. Jackson's home port is Muskegan, Michigan. The vessel is used by scientists in central to southern Lake Michigan.
