James R Baker

The James R Barker heads out onto Lake Superior with a load of 52,000 tons of coal for Taconite Harbor.
The 1000 Ft. Barker was built in 1976 at a cost of 43 million dollars.


  1. I may sound like a broken record here, but another fantastic photo.

    Also: can you imagine what's going thru the mind of the captain of the small fishing boat in the distance? Yowza.


  2. Thank you for adding this camera angle. What a fabulous view!!

  3. Today is 5/24 18:33 the Corp of Engineers cam is refreshing OK....the others are not REALLY refreshing even though the count-down says it is...the time stamp is about 5 minutes behind the actual the new inner harbor shot...but it is not refreshing and manually refreshing does not help either
