So the moment I had been waiting for had finally arrived. I would get to see which would be the first ship to pass through the Soo Locks for the 2012 shipping season. That ship would be the Mesabi Miner. For a while, I thought that I wouldn't be able to share these pictures. As I was messing around with something, accidently hit the Format Card button on my camera. Fortunately, my dad was with me and he told me that the pictures may not be completely lost as long as I didn't use the card. So I put my backup card and waited until I got home. After perusing a couple blogs, I found a program that would restore my pictures for me, so here they are.
So in this post I want to thank my dad because without him it wouldn't have been possible. I would have just had the words. I also want to thank the Army Corps of Engineers. Without them, we wouldn't have the Soo Locks.
I am looking forward to doing this next year.
