When In Doubt, Do Not Go Out!

Lake Superior is a beautiful body of water with a great view from whatever place you may be, but it does have a dark history in its cold deep waters.

Nobody knows just how many ships, boats and other watercraft line the bottom of this lake, or how many people went down with them over the years.

But one thing should be remembered, be careful when venturing out onto these waters, they can be dangerous for both shippers and recreationists alike and the weather changes very quickly out on the lake.

Recently while working North of Marquette Michigan we came across this beautiful reminder of the dangers and memorial to 16 of the people who have passed away in this great lake.Lake superior memorial, marquette mi

I love the picture of the statue.  Lake Superior is huge and I'm sure it can be very dangerous at times.

That body of water is a lot more like an ocean than a lake. Good advice.

Bob,  One of my all time favorite songs is Gordon Lightfoot telling of the sinking Edmond Fitzgerald? on one of the lakes up there.  He paints a vivid picture of the perils of the lakes.  Mark
