And the American Spirit is Still Ticking

Next up was the American Spirit.  She was waiting in the Poe Lock as we got back to the Locks.  It was a pretty busy day at the Locks and certainly makes up for last year.
 She kicks in her diesels and starts to pull out of the lock.
 She still towers over the locks but I guess that's what a thousand footer does.
 Looking down her deck.
 And she heads towards the River.
 One of her crew members making sure that she is clearing the wall.
 A shot of her pilot house.
 A picture of two thousand feet worth of ship.
 She works her way past the Gott.
 The two thousand footers carefully pass each other.
And nearly a half mile worth of ship.
