- I worked as a tour guide for two summers at the Umpqua River Lighthouse in Oregon. This opportunity enabled me to learn more about this lighthouse than any of the others I've seen. Although I have personally visited 302 lighthouses in the United States and three Provinces in Canada, the Umpqua River Lighthouse has special meaning for me. This is where I was inspired to write my book titled, "The Wickie."

At the time of my visit in 1998, this lighthouse had been converted into a museum. It offered an opportunity to visualize a life that was centered around the Great Lakes. Visitors could see the original lighthouse lens on display, and climb a wrought-iron spiral staircase to the top of the 38 foot tower.
