Today's wet and wild photos were snapped by Ryan Wainio, along Lakeshore Drive in Marquette. Looking at the top photo, you immediately see the dirty splash of Lake Superior water, mixed with sand and then upon closer examination you notice that there are even some ice chunks flying in that watery spray. Same thing in the second photo as the wave "slaps" the shoreline ice. Ryan's third shot illustrates what the cold Superior splash does to the rocks that line her shores. That's some pretty thick ice built up there. I wonder how long it will take for the spring sunshine to melt through a chunk like that?

Awesome photos. Mary, I wondered, many years ago (1979/'80) how long it would take the massive ice to melt on Lake Michigan, but my husband's job in Charlevoix was finished in March of '80, so we had to leave before that process started. It was funny when we moved up there that someone told me that Lake Michigan would freeze, and I just couldn't imagine that happening.....until I saw it with my own eyes.;) That was awesome, too!

Once when we were at a hockey tournement in Grand Rapids, Minn out on the ice was an old '37 Chevvy and we were told they sold tickets to see the exact day and minute that it would sink.

Cool pictures. Literally. That is one amazing lake.

Great pictures. Since moving away from the Copper Country many years ago I don't get to see Lake Superior in winter anymore. I do prefer the summer when I can actually get in it.
