The Philip R. Clarke stops at a lot of ports on the Great Lakes as it moves taconite, limestone and coal between them. This season, a few of the ports it has visited are Gary and Buffington in Indiana, Stoneport, Cedarville, Alpena, Monroe and Detroit in Michigan, Conneaut and Huron in Ohio and Erie, Pennsylvania. It came into port last night (above) with limestone loaded in Cedarville. It should depart Duluth for Two Harbors today to load taconite for Conneaut. Photo taken on July 20, 2007.
