The last week in May were in Duluth. There was still a lot of ice outside the harbor. The area had been clear of ice but the winds changed and blew the ice back to Duluth. It was so thick that the tour boats couldn’t get out of the harbor. I walked down to Canal Park at sunrise to capture some photos of the ice. This shot of the Duluth skyline shows the amount of ice in the harbor.

The Federal Mattawa was outside the harbor. It stayed outside the harbor for 23 days waiting to come into port. The crew couldn’t leave the ship because they hadn’t cleared customs. At first it had to wait for other ships to load grain then there wasn’t enough grain to load.

The first shot was taken from the lake side of the Duluth Aerial Lift Bridge. I had to wait for cars to cross the bridge because of the vibration. For the second shot I crossed to the harbor side of the Duluth Aerial Lift Bridge so I could include some of the bridge in the photo.
