Lake Superior Sunset

Old legends say that “Lake Superior never gives up her dead”. I asked around and apparently the scientific explanation is that the water in Lake Superior is so cold that bacteria doesn’t grow in a drowned human body. Without the growth of bacteria the body sinks and never returns to the surface.

The water in this photo looks cold enough to support this macabre legend.
