On the 2nd last day or our trip we went south from Wawa through Superior park again. I loved it there so much I thought it was the perfect place to spend the end of our journey. We explored some of the same sites and a few new ones (including seeing the Chippewa river, if you remember the Gordon Lightfoot song ‘Wreck of the Edmund Fitzgerald).
We made friends!
Just for fun; I read up about this fascinating lake during the drive and thought I’d end off by sharing some Lake Superior facts.
Lake Superior is the largest freshwater lake in the world by surface area
Lake Superior could hold the water from all of the other Great Lakes, along with three more Lake Eries. Because of its great size, Superior has a retention time of 191 years.
It contains 10% of the world’s fresh surface water
Thanks to a weather phenomenon known as a ‘noreaster’, Lake Superior is the site of 350 ship wrecks, including the Edmund Fitzgerald
The water is so clean that the average depth of visibility is 27 feet
The deepest spot in the lake is 1,332 ft (406 metres)
