Bete Griese - Mendota Light

Guarding the canal between Lake Superior and Lac Labelle, the Mendota light is inaccessible except for views from the opposite side of the canal. The light is unlike any other on the Great Lakes, in that it's integrated tower sits in the center of a deeply sloped roof. This lighthouse, owned and well maintained by Gary Kohs, is on of the most picturesque lights on the Lake.
