Put In Bay & Marblehead, OH, with Ron Gaskins & Amanda Haddox

June 24 - June 26


Mountaineer Photo Excursions is returning to northern Ohio to see some sights! We will be visiting the town of Put In Bay on South Bass Island on Lake Erie. Put In Bay has many attractions, such as the Heineman’s Winery, the Crystal Cave, Perry’s Victory & International Peace Memorial, the Butterfly House, the South Bass Island Lighthouse and more! In addition, it’s a Pirate Weekend! “Yo Ho Ho!” Pyrate Fest 2022! “Argh!”

In addition, 2022 is the 200th Anniversary of the Marblehead Lighthouse. It is located within the Marblehead Lighthouse State Park and is one of Lake Erie’s best known and most-photographed landmarks. This lighthouse is the oldest one in continuous operation on the Great Lakes! The grounds also include the Keeper’s House, constructed in 1880, and a replica of the U.S. Lifesaving Station, which was completed in 2016.

To round out our weekend, we’ll also visit the Port Clinton Lighthouse. This restored lighthouse was in service for 56 years until it was decommissioned in 1952. In 2014, restoration began and when complete, the lighthouse was relocated to the northern end of Waterworks Park. A replica Lightkeeper’s Boathouse is located nearby.

Our weekend will also include other venues in the region to see wildlife and scenic views of the Lake Erie area. Our workshop weekend will include admission to our selected venues, lodging for Friday and Saturday nights, and lunch on Saturday.
