SS Badger Ferry Lake Michigan

Waiting to board the last coal fired ferry on the Great Lakes. 
The SS Badger Ferry brought  us on a 4 hour crossing of 
Lake Michigan. The Badger's sister ship, the Spartan, is in the background of this photo.
On board we sat in the sun and met the Mayor of Green Bay Wisconsin.
He invited us to a Green Bay Packers pre-season football game when Brett Favre was still their quarterback.
We declined because we were anxious to get to Sturgis S.D.

The S.S. Badger is a coal-fired passenger and vehicle ferry in the United States that has been in Lake Michigan service from 1953 until the present. Currently, she shuttles between Manitowoc, Wisconsin and Ludington, Michigan. She is the last coal-fired passenger vessel operating on the Great Lakes
