The Federal Kivalina would the last ship that I would see today. She was heading down from Thunder Bay (I assume) with a load of grain. She would be taking that grain to Montreal. If I remember correctly, this is about a 4 day journey. It is probably the longest journey a ship will make and still be on the Lakes.
I was able to get my picture of the train with the ship. Sadly, no planes flew by, so I wasn't able to get my trifecta shot.
I was just taking multiple angles.
I think I like this one the best.
The Federal Kivalina was built in 2000. She is 656 feet long and can carry a little over 36,000 tons of cargo.
She is named after the Kivalina River which is located in the northwest part of Alaska. There is also a city named Kivalina which apparently is fighting a losing battle against the ocean. The city tried to sue Exxon Mobil over greenhouse gases. It sounds like that was passed on to Congress.
At any rate, she's a pretty nice looking ship.
I kind of liked the reflections in the water as she passed.
