Hi Vicki~  I love lighthouses, but I have never seen one up close and personal!

These are fully functional navigational aids that individuals and businesses have dedicated.  Those on the Arizona side of the river are all East Coast replicas.  The California side of the river sports West Coast replicas.  And, the island has lighthouses that replicate those on the Great Lakes.  I hope you get a chance to come visit some time!
