Angle to Key West: Lake Superior (7/15)

Lake Superior, Grand Portage Bay, MN – July 15,  2012

I imagined the moment a thousand times before it happened. I pictured the richest green forest giving way to the deepest blue water. I thought rocks would shimmer like gems beneath the waves and the sun would fly over a clear sky. I believed nothing could be so beautiful.

I walked for three days down that muddy-green path. I felt my feet rip apart, felt my back crumble, felt my shoulders bruise to the bone as my imagination spun tales. By the thousandth time, I saw the moment so clearly that it almost felt real.

Then the forest broke under the Looksha’s yellow hull, water stretched to the sky, and all my imagination seemed pale.
