Contest #62 Answer: Soo Locks, Michigan/Ontario

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

-Wreck of the Edmund Fitzgerald, Gordon Lightfoot

For contest 62, Skip has taken us to the border of Michigan and Ontario to the Soo Locks in Sault St. Marie, MI/ONT. The locks connect Lake Superior and Lake Michigan. They are the busiest locks in the world with over 12,000 ships per year passing through them.

Sorry for delays in getting the new contest up and the leader board. I’m in Cambodia right now with Vietnam and Laos next on the agenda. The internet here is less than optimal.
