It’s Highway 63 just north of Grand View in Bayfield County, Wis., the main drag to Lake Superior, Ashland, and Bayfield from the south. It’s at least 30 feet deep.

You can try snaking around some of the side roads to get where you’re going.

Just don’t take Highway E, it’s been done in by 18 Mile Creek, too.

Fortunately, the people who have the worst job in the Upper Midwest right now are pretty good at it.
