St. Marys Challenger 's last trip
November 17, 20

Photographer / author Chris Winters was aboard the St. Marys Challenger on her last trip last week from Chicago to Sturgeon Bay, Wis., where the 107-year-old cement carrier will be converted to a barge. Here are some of his images. If they look like they should be in a book, that's not surprising. Winters is author of "Centennial: Steaming Though the American Century," written about the vessel.
Visit for more of his stunning work.
