CGC Alder slowly making headway

After taking a well deserved evening rest off the shores of Barkers Island in Superior, the CGC Alder once again began the task of breaking the first path through the thick Duluth-Superior Harbor ice-pack.
Before the Alder resumed it operation, it made for some interesting images in the early morning hours with temperatures hanging around 5F.

  1. Nice photos Dennis! Still get comments on your photos in my office. I have the chickadee, Two Harbors Lighthouse and of my lighthouse Splitrock. You mentioned that you were going to install another camera in an undisclosed location. I'm hoping it will be at Splitrock. I always look forward to opening your website throughout the day. Janet

  3. Dennis,
    Thank you for the incredible pictures of the the Alder this morning. You're the best. I remember you mentioning there is going to be a new camera at a undisclosed location. I'm hoping it's at SplitRock Lighthouse. That would be wonderful!! Janet

  4. Great shots of the morning and the Alder!!. Just curious, am I also seeing a few eagles hanging around.?? That would be awesome to see them aiming for the open water the Alder is creating.

  5. Not unusual for eagles to fly overhead, but, they usually don't stop by the canal.

  6. Don't tell anyone, but, the new camera will be at Canal Park, looking towards the bridge.

  7. Thanks for the winter shots..shipping season will indeed be exciting to watch. Is it possible to put a "slide" bar on the realtime cams. On laptops, so much of the viewing area is cut off by all the ads, etc.? I think the museum cam had one last week for one day and then back to an un-adjustable screen shot. The little tug boat is not visible.
