Burns Harbor uses Superior entry

The Burns Harbor will be here for the 43rd and last time today. That is more than most boats that visit the Twin Ports each year, but we never saw it once come under the Lift Bridge. It arrived and departed each time using the Superior entry. That is because it was loading taconite at the Burlington Northern dock in Superior, a dock that is right around the corner from the Superior entrance. Photo taken January 1, 2002.
