Pere Marquette Ghosts as a late running Amtrak #370 the Pere Marquette rolls in the night time rain toward the coal tower in New Buffalo, Mi. April 30, 2017.

The Marquette Harbor Light sits on a rock bluff above Lake Superior in the U.P. city of Marquette, Mich. and is considered one of the most picturesque lighthouses on the Lake Superior coast.

The Duluth South Shore and Atlantic Railroad Ore dock ruin at Marquette is sill standing in the lower harbour, unlike in Ashington, WI where they tore theirs down.


Photographed using a Sony Alpha A7R using a Nikkor 50mm f/1.2 lens. 30 sec. exposure.

The photo was taken on an overcast day and the statue is apart of a larger series. To find out more about the site, either follow the link below or read the excerpt.


From :


The site commemorates the Chicago Portage first written about and used by French explorers Father Jacques Marquette and Louis Joliet during their exploration of the area between Lake Michigan and the Mississippi River. The portage crossed what was known as Mud Lake, which could be wet, swampy, frozen, or dry, depending on the season, and which has since been completely obliterated. Mud Lake extended roughly from the historic western end of the South Branch of the Chicago River (near today's Damen Avenue) to the Des Plaines River at this National Historic Site. These explorers understood the importance of the easiest crossing of the continental divide between the Gulf of Mexico and Atlantic Ocean watersheds.


The site, which was designated January 3, 1952 as an "affiliated area" of the National Park Service, is owned and administered by the Forest Preserve District of Cook County. Visitor access is via Harlem Avenue, just north of Interstate 55. The site contains the parking area, a memorial statue, interpretive signs, and trails. Activities here are hiking and canoeing, and the Friends of the Chicago Portage sponsors guided walks. In the future, it is hoped that adjacent vacant industrial land can be used to construct a visitor's center.

Taken May 9th, 2014. That Winter , Lake Superior was almost totally frozen. Float ice was still present in the lower harbor until the middle of June.

A nice hike along the beach this evening...a consistent, strong, Northerly wind over the past few days has pushed all the surface ice into Marquette's bay. Thousands of 1inch thick sheets of ice piled up, and melded together, extending out over a mile into the lake.
