American Spirit here for winter layup

The American Spirit was expected to arrive here earlier this morning for its 31st and last trip of the season. It loaded taconite on all the previous trips this year. Today, it will go into winter lay up at the Port Terminal. It is the second of 11 boats expected to spend the winter in the port.
