Weekly Photo Challenge: Monument

Uncle Harvey’s Mausoleum (otherwise known as “The Cribs”) is a monument to failed ingenuity.

The story behind “The Cribs” is described in this shoreline plaque (click on the photo for an enlarged view).

These photos were taken a few weeks ago and, thankfully, Lake Superior is finally opening up with more water than ice these days!  Spring is slow in unfolding this year.

  1. When I was about 20 I jumped off the back end of the ice house on a hot summer day with some co-workers of mine. It is hard to tell when you are looking at it from the shore, but it is over two stories tall on that side, and a VERY scary jump. It is a story I like to tell my kids because they can hardly believe it now!


      • I hear that about the lake. Superior is more like an inland sea than a lake. You can’t see the other side from shore, can you?


      • It does often seem like an inland sea — the effect on the weather, creation of microclimates, powerful destructive force during storms …. depending on which shore you’re standing on, you can’t see across. I am posting some more pics of Spring shipping scenes this evening.
