The car ferry Badger (left) gets ready to make a trip across Lake Michigan to Wisconsin. The other ship is the Spartan. The 420′ Badger is the largest car ferry ever to sail Lake Michigan. When I was young, there were people who’d just ride back and forth and play cribbage. At today’s rates, I’m guessing the recreational rider may be a thing of the past.

  1. Nice shot. I went to Ludington on Saturday and back to Manitowoc on Sunday. Ludington has a really interesting port-complete with the contrast of the ships sitting next to each other at night. People may not just “ride back and forth and play cribbage” anymore, but plenty of them rode this weekend, right down to the semi drivers. The cargo deck was so full on Sunday, there was a semi secured right up behind the seagate.
