Take a little trip

Here's a shot from our little trip out of Saxon Harbor, WI. We paddled up toward Little Sisters Point, MI, about 5 miles. Saw some beautiful palisades and rock formations, the water on Lake Superior was like glass so we could see to the bottom down to about 60 feet. It was a great trip. On the way back, I saw a line moving toward us from the horizon. As it got closer, I knew it was a wake wave from who knew where as we didn't see or hear any ships go by. We turned into it, mostly so we could really see what was coming, and it was a short series of rolls almost 3 feet high! Very Cool! Later we asked a Park Ranger what would have caused it, she told us it was from a ore boat/barge that had gone by, probably miles & miles away. It just took awhile to get to us. Amazing.
