Burns Harbor at Superior entry

If you don’t watch boats at the Superior entry, you don’t often see the Burns Harbor, as it almost exclusively comes to the Twin Ports to load taconite at the Burlington Northern Taconite Facility in Superior. That dock is just inside the Superior entry. The Burns Harbor will be coming to this end of Lake Superior today for the 22nd time this season. Above, it is going out into the Lake through the Superior entry after loading taconite at the BN last month. Today, it will be even further away, making a rare trip to Two Harbors to load taconite for Indiana Harbor. It usually goes to steel facilities there or in Burns Harbor.
