Algowood backwards exit

We do not often see a boat about to go under the Lift Bridge while the bridge is still on the way up. Happily, the picture above of the Algowood, taken on January 2, 2002, is not an example of that. The Algowood is departing Duluth going backward. It has just cleared the bridge as it moves out the Duluth ship canal. It turned around just beyond the piers and disappeared over the horizon, facing east.
