It's the ore dock in Marquette. Here are my brother and I in front of it but this picture is from the other side from where that other picture was taken (most likely the Marquette information center/park and Father Marquette Memorial statue).

I take it there is a geocache hidden along there? :thumb:

its the NEW ore dock btw. I have pictures somewhere of the old one that was all wood. Not sure if they tore the whole thing down to build a new one or if they just renovated that one, but its vastly improved over what was there.

Yep...there is a geocache there (some of you guys know me too well). I don't know if this information is still valid, but if you are in the area and would like to see a freighter loaded you can call (906)226-6122 to find out the time to be there to witness it. I hear that it is pretty spectacular but haven't seen it myself. Note: it gets its ore from the Tilden and Empire mines, South of Negaunee.

We saw one being loaded one night. It was pretty cool. We were sitting there watching it and we looked to our left and there were 3 deer not 15 feet away from us and they didn't care that we were there talking and joking around. My son got within prolly 5 feet of one and it might have let him get closer but I pulled him back.

Those ramps, or shutes they lower are huge. Like a gigantic slide. And the train cars on top of the thing look tiny compared to everything else.
