Mother superior

Solo road trip to Split Rock Lighthouse – Two Harbors, MN

“The Cliffs of Insanity!”

-Vizzini, The Princess Bride

“Those who have never seen Superior get an inadequate idea by hearing it spoken of as a lakeSuperior is a sea; It breeds storms and rain and fog like a sea. It is cold, masterful, and dreaded.”

– Rev. George Grant, 1872

The legend lives on from the Chippewa on down
Of the big lake they called Gitche Gumee
The lake, it is said, never gives up her dead
When the skies of November turn gloomy

-Gordon Lightfoot, The Wreck of the Edmund Fitzgerald
