Superior in so many ways

beautiful lost in fog

and on a clear day
4th largest lake in the world
largest freshwater
touching three states and Canada
40 degree water
partially freezing in the winter
warming a bit in the summer

livelihood of many a shipper and dockworker
transporter of iron ore and coal
home to Great Lakes freighters reaching 1000 feet in length
grave to many like the crew of the Edmund Fitzgerald
icy blast in the winter

unbelievably blue

long summer days
