We happened to be in Duluth, Minnesota a few weeks ago when the Icebreakers arrived. It was late in the day and there was a large crowd on hand to greet the ships. The US Coast Guard Cutter Mackinaw was the first to arrive. It is the largest Coast Guard Cutter working in the great lakes. It typically come to Duluth to break ice prior to the start of the shipping season.

 

The Mackinaw was followed by the US Coast Guard Cutter Alder. The Alder’s home base is Duluth and there were a number of family members on hand to greet the crew. Apparently the Alter had been away from port for a while breaking ice around the Soo Locks.
