"Wrath of Superior"
Lake Superior has a reputation for "never giving up her dead." The world's largest inland lake by surface area, can be a force so impressive it boggles the mind. When famed Nor'easters slam Minnesota's North Shore all chaos is unleased. Watching the cliffs of Tettegouche get pounded by monster waves and fortunate enough to get close to capture it, I was elated as a kid in
a candy store.
