Expedition Journals

From 1986 to the present, Don and Diana Carter have traveled around the country visiting and photographing lighthouses. During these expeditions, Diana kept a journal detailing their trip and when and where they photographed each lighthouse.

Within each journal are links to the entries for the lighthouses visited. Because some lighthouses were visited more than once, the photograph displayed for the lighthouse may not necessarily be a photograph that was taken on that particular trip.
