Hurricane River Flowing Into Lake Gitche Gumee

Glitch Gumee is what Henry Wadsworth Longfellow called Lake Superior in his "The Song of Hiawatha". Here, the Hurricane River can be seen flowing over the beach where it has created its riverbed in the sand over the centuries. Lake Superior contains more water that all the other Great Lakes combined and, if its water was spread over North and South America it would be one-foot deep. If spread over the lower-48-states, it would be 8 feet deep. This river and beach are located in Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore in Michigan's upper peninsula, near the City of Munising. (2012)
