15,000 years ago, 2/3 of what is today Wisconsin lay under the grip of colossal ice sheets. The climate warmed and they began to melt back. In their wake, they left an impressive glacial landscape of fascinating landforms - moraines, drumlins, kames, kettles, eskers, outwash plains, erratics, meltwater channels, potholes, driftless (unglaciated) topography, glacial lake beds, islands and more. justintrails.com

The SS Carl D. Bradley was a self-unloading Great Lakes freighter that sank in a Lake Michigan storm on November 18, 1958. Of the 35 crew members, 33 died in the sinking and 23 were from the port town of Rogers City, Michigan. Her sinking was likely caused by structural failure from the brittle steel used in her construction. She was the sister of the ill-fated SS Cedarville.
