Lake Superior - She ain't frozen over!
8 months ago

I headed to Marquette today to visit a friend and much to my surprise I found that Lake Superior had opened up again. She's a beautiful lake but very tempermental. Today she was well behaved so I was able to get a few shots with the sun out on a cool and crisp morning.

  • Lake Superior is, by surface area, the world's largest freshwater lake.
  • The surface area of Lake Superior (31,700 square miles or 82,170 square kilometers) is greater than the combined areas of Vermont, Massachusetts, Rhode Island, Connecticut, and New Hampshire.
  • Lake Superior contains as much water as all the other Great Lakes combined, even throwing in two extra Lake Eries.
  • Lake Superior contains 10% of all the earth's fresh surface water.
  • Average year round temperature is 40 degrees but rarely freezes over. 

Thanks for looking.

Scott
