Late afternoon on October 21, 2011, the Algolake departed with iron ore pellets and shortly after she went under, the Cason J. Callaway departed on the same lift. Listen to each salute the bridge: first the Algolake and then the Callaway

Waves to the American Mariner

The American Mariner arrived Duluth on Friday, October 21st around noon. She is loading wheat at General Mills in Superior to take to Buffalo. She follows the path that the Kinsman Independent (now called the Ojibway) used to take for many years, keeping General Mills flour mills filled with wheat so they can make lots of Wheaties. Listen to her whistle and the Duluth Aerial Lift Bridge response.
