A lighthouse on a cliff in a lake, in the United States (Split Rock)

It was many storms, and many tragic shipwrecks that led to the construction of a lighthouse near Split Rock, on a rocky cliff in Lake Superior. Precisely, it is called Split Rock Lighthouse, and it is on the north shore of Lake Superior. , a wooded area (as well as rocky) where what would be one of the most photogenic lighthouses in the United States. Built and completed around 1910, the lighthouse is located in Minnesota and it was for years an inescapable reference on a rough and dangerous coast in the many days with bad weather in the area.
