This post is slightly out of order as I saw her after I saw the Blough for the first time. However, I wanted to show her posts first.
The Kaye E. Barker is heading down from Marquette to the Rouge River. She will be delivering taconite pellets to the AK Steel Mill. I kind of wish, it weren't so late when I caught her last night because it would have been neat to catch her in the Rouge.
At any rate, this is a voyage she will make several times in a season. In fact, she's already made this voyage several times.
But I'm not going to complain, because she's a lovely vessel that looks even lovelier in the right light.
I kind of liked this picture.
She's framed by the Blue Water Bridge.
A shot of her pilothouse.
A beam shot.
And she continues her way down the River. In approximately 7 hours from this picture, she will be at the steel mill unloading. If I remember, she will unload in approximately 5 hours. After that, she will be heading back north. I think today she is headed to Calcite, where she will pick up stone.
