American Spirit departs with pellets

The American Spirit departed Duluth last night at 6:45 (above) with a load of iron ore pellets for Zug Island, Michigan. It will be back in port in about 5 days to load iron ore pellets again, this time for Gary, Indiana. Not long after it departed last night, it should have passed the American Integrity on the way to Duluth to load coal and not too far behind it was the Mesabi Miner, coming to the Twin Ports to load iron ore pellets.
