Sault Sainte Marie....

Cold and clear
...Ontario, home of the Soo Locks and International Bridge,
from the low elevation of Superior to the high of a ridge;
this is the homes of the worlds busiest locks, right here,
between Lake Superior and the "lower lakes", they're near.

Iron ore must be the biggest commodity shipped,
water levels pumped up and down, and none are skipped;
the bridge marks the end of US Interstate 75,
it's a long ride across, but you'll come out alive.

The Soo Locks, with a ship just passed through, and the International Bridge,
Michigan on one side, Ontario on the other. Click to enlarge

Ouimet Canyon, straddle a long dry river bed.
