|Duluth, MN a City with hills!|
Superior, WI on the other hand is more spread out and touristy. We had a good time here geocaching and visiting the city attractions. One historic site was this long elevated concrete structure with railroad tracks on top and a multitude of shoots on the sides. After thinking of the song "The Wreck of the Edmond Fitzgerald" I started to think of the words. The Edmond Fitzgerald with a load of iron ore, ah! This structure is how they loaded the iron ore from the railroad cars into the huge ships that carried this iron ore around the great lakes. The song also says "Lake Superior never gives up her dead", well in our short travels Lake Superior seems more ominous than the other Great Lakes.
