Wreck of the Gale Staples

The remnants of this steamship, the Gale Staples, are located just a few hundred yards down the beach from the Au Sable light station. This ship was lost here in 1918 in a Lake Superior storm. Now, 96 years later, this is what remains. Interesting note, this ship was built in Marine City, MI. Not far at all from where I live. Wreck of the Gale Staples
