Currents in the Duluth Shipping Canal can be tricky, especially after a heavy rain, such as last night.
When the 698 foot Michipicoten began to make it's final turn into the canal this afternoon, it was forced to back up and re-negotiate the turn in the swift current.
An alert crew, made the correction with plenty of room to spare.
An interesting turn of events to watch.

I often visit Split Rock Lighthouse and never get tired of it's sheer beauty.
Sitting on top of a 130 foot cliff, the lighthouse has stood sentinel over Lake Superior's North Shore for over 100 years.
Hang onto your hat as you step out on the ledge of the lantern room for a dramatic 360 degree view of the big lake.

While you view the beautiful scenes around the Duluth-Superior Harbor today through the harborcams, I don't want you to miss some of the other gems around Duluth, such as Enger Park and it's new pavilion.
Enger Park is located high on the bluffs in the heart of Duluth.
It's good to see the big boys (1000 footers) back in town now that Midwest Energy is operational after the flooding.

The Full Buck Moon – July is normally the month when the new antlers of buck deer push out of their foreheads in coatings of velvety fur. It was also often called the Full Thunder Moon, for the reason that thunderstorms are most frequent during this time. Another name for this month’s Moon was the Full Hay Moon.
The July full moon drifted up through the Lake Superior horizon on a rare 85 degree F evening in Duluth.
Canal Park was still crowded with people as the moon broke through the haze for a wonderful lunar display of God's creation.
Late last evening at 20:45, as the Duluth Aerial Lift Bridge was lifting for the 1000 foot American Integrity, the bridge lost power and the alert crew of the Integrity made a go-around and re-entered once the power was restored.
Had the crew and Bridge Operator not done a superb job in dealing with this emergency, a catastrophe would have occurred in front of a crowded Canal park.
This video will show the first attempted entry and the go-around.
