Where Is This Satellite Global Restroom Parked?

Tourists find welcome relief provided by a portable restroom operator when they visit this impressive monument to a bygone era

Where Is This Satellite Global Restroom Parked?

Can you identify the location of this restroom? The PRO company name has been digitally erased from the unit to increase the challenge.

As the evening sun casts a warm glow, users of this green Satellite Industries Global restroom have an interesting view of the water’s edge. Read these clues, and see if you can identify the structure in the background and the city where it’s located.

  1. The support columns of this impressive concrete and steel structure jut 970 feet into the frigid waters. Once important to local commerce, the only purpose it now serves is as a landmark to the city. 
  2. There wasn’t gold in them thar hills. It was a different — and less inspiring — kind of mining rush that drew thousands to this area in the 1800s.
  3. The legend lives on from the Chippewa on down of the big lake they call Gitche Gumee. The lake, it is said, never gives up her dead when the skies of November turn gloomy.
  4. In this city, another architectural wonder is found, the largest of its kind in the world.
  5. Get used to the white stuff if you live here, the third snowiest spot in the lower 48 states with an average of 149 inches. 
  6. It’s just a short drive — or long snowmobile ride — to Yalmar, Clowry and Swanzy.
  7. With countless shoreline views like this, it’s no surprise that this city was listed as one of the 10 best places to retire in a 2012 CBS MoneyWatch survey.
