Philip R. Clarke

The Philip R. Clarke is coming to Duluth today to discharge a cargo of limestone. They will likely stop for fuel first. That completed, they will move to Two Harbors to load taconite. Recent ports of call for the Clarke have included Stoneport, Calcite, Cedarville/Port Dolomite and Zug Island in Michigan, Buffington in Indiana, Conneaut in Ohio, Green Bay in Wisconsin, South Chicago in Illinois, Gary in Indiana and Meldrum Bay in Ontario. And of course, Two Harbors and Duluth/Superior. Above, the Clarke spent the winter layup between 2002 and 2003 at the Port Terminal.
