Ice Melts on Lake Michigan, Revealing Sunken Ships

Did you lose a ship in Lake Michigan during the last couple centuries? If so, head on over there, because the Coast Guard probably just found it. The U.S. Coast Guard Air Station Traverse City revealed, via its Facebook page, that with the ice recently melted the water in the lake is so clear that you can see straight through it and glimpse a bunch of wrecked ships along the shoreline. The images are both beautiful and haunting.
