Port of Duluth

Had an opportunity today to explore Duluth a bit.  Posting here some pictures for those requesting more car pictures.

This is an ore vessel that once sailed the Great Lakes loaded with taconite ore from the Iron Range.  Big, but not as big as the 1000' monsters they use today.

Access to the harbor from Lake Superior is through a lift bridge.  Goes up and down to allow passage of ships.

Lake Superior is vast.  Here is a view of the West end of the lake.

Great food and wine enjoyed with friends tonight at the Kitchi Gammi Club.  My '72 350SL and friend Cheryl's '09 SLK300 in front of the club.

Will be in Duluth one more day before heading West Saturday morning. Looking forward to some great driving.
