The Schnauzer's were looking for a way to put out a short series of caches in this part of the county, and our "Great Lakes Tributes" will do just that. Nothing difficult about these caches, just plain and simple park and grabs. These may be a little touger to tackle during the winter months. You shouldn't have too much trouble with muggles, though there are some farmsteads nearby so you may want to be on the lookout for them if they're out in their fields.
Lake Superior is our favorite of the Great Lakes and truly lives up to its name. It is the largest of the Great Lakes in volume and is arguably the largest in surface area as well (disputed with Lake Michigan on this). If you can picture the state of Iowa from the Missouri to the Mississippi, it is approximately 300 miles across. This is the width of Lake Superior. With it's rocky coastline, picturesque lighthouses and beautiful vistas, it's no wonder Lake Superior is a vacation destination for so many all times of the year. The World's largest freshwater port - Duluth, Minnesota - lies on the west end of the lake and is home to the amazing Aerial Lift Bridge, which some locals deem "The 8th Wonder of the World." Though beautiful to vacationers, Lake Superior can be a deadly force as well. In November of 1975, the Edmund Fitzgerald left Superior, Wisconsin bound for the Soo Locks (East end of the lake) and never arrived. Twenty-Nine crew members parished on board as the freighter succumbed to the waves (titled the "Gales of November." Superior is majestic, spectacular, awe-inspiring and beautiful.
