122 steps? That could be tiring, but I can manage that. This lighthouse mesmerized me.

I lived in Ky for 10 years and found one in the state too, i was told it was build using field stone by a vietnam vet as a guiding light for his lost comrades

&LycaChic - Can't take personal credit for these photos. They are in the public domain as per my pix credits. But I thought they told the story very well.

&sabrielle - I liked the story very much. They had to figure out and overcome problems along the way. I think they did a great job.

&coyprightchaos - I think the shots that I used sort of tell the story

&pkmom - I'd have to take it easy with the steps because my legs would be screaming.

&JudyE - I'm sure they will. Especially since it is being used to draw people and it has a brochure and received a lot of publicity. Such a good idea.

&teachershan - I agree. It's amazing because of the whole project and the student involvement and all. Nice thing for everyone though.

&AsianChick - It's a nice thing to have and to have accomplished. Not bad looking at all.

&Judoka5 - That's so cool. Do you ever attend the Derby? It's a really big deal.

&Fearlessbetz - With the height, I guess there'd have to be lots of step. You have to work to get to the top. With the small diameter, those steps are circular. Harder to go down, I think easier to go up.

This sounds like a super project. It's out of the question for me to climb the steps but the view must be astounding.

This is a great idea. I should think the students involved would remember that lighthouse throughout their lives.

I am amazed that it was made by students...great job! A true treasure indeed :)

&Brite-Ideas - Yes it is a nostalgic sort of feeling, sort of. They do stand straight, tall and steady. Yet, due to erosion and wind forces as well as the passing of time, many are and were threatened to be destroyed - that's I think one of the reasons they are so popular now. They had to be saved and pulled from the brink - in so doing, people rediscovered lighthouses and made them ever so popular.

Love lighthouses as well - love the feeling they give you when looking at them - of longing, of beauty, of time gone by, of something that stands steady through it all - :)

&stinepacis1 - This would not be a normal lighthouse but interesting to visit just the same. There are some amazing lighthouses and there has been a mighty revitalization of all lighthouses in the States. Many have gone into private ownership and can be stayed at (like a bed and breakfast). Some still work. Some have been electrified. Each has a unique story. They have a huge following.

&resurgam - I thought so as well. Look, despite some of the odds faced, this now stands and has become a unique tourist attraction. That is cool in my estimation.

&Deolinda - You should try to re-establish contact with them. Who knows, you may find yourself visiting here some time. I have almost no relations left in Germany and very few here in the States. We're such a small family. It's a good thing to establish family connections. You've got the names - :) go for it! Every place in the world has previous and wonderful places to visit. This country is full of discoveries of nature.

I wish I could visit, I have never been there and seen a lighthouse before

I wish I could visit real America, not that one of the movies! I had several american cousins: Linnae da Siva, Richard da Silva, and their father, Edgar da Silva.
I don´t know what hapened to them, because we loose contact.
