Algosteel brings salt to Duluth

2015-1214-5210
The Algosteel arrived Duluth this morning at 10 am with salt she is discharging at the North American Salt Dock. I took the picture above and just below from my balcony which provides me with a good view but for some tree issues. In the warm months, I have leaves on the left and right that frame my pictures of the bridge from the balcony. In the winter, the leaves fall away and the “world’s largest Christmas tree” rises,  just about the time the last leaves have left the scene. They take it down January, sometimes in time for me to get at least one picture of a boat arriving before the season closes down. Not that I am complaining!

Above, I have moved down to my office in Canal Park to get a picture of her as she is slowly moving into the Salt Dock. Above her in the picture, left to right, you see the General Mills A mill, the old Lafarge cement silos, the rapidly rising PierB resort, the Paulucci Pavilion and the Great Lakes Aquarium.

This is the second trip here for the Algosteel this season; she was here on May 31 loading iron ore pellets at the BN in Superior. Last season, she made 7 trips here, bringing salt twice and loading iron ore pellets at both the CN dock in Duluth and the BN in Superior.

  1. Nice, thanks! It’s good to see the different angles and to know what all those structures are.
