The Philip R. Clarke Floats by Mission Point

If there is one type of ship that I like to catch, it is the classic Laker.  With the Arthur M. Anderson in layup, their number is down by one this year.  I'm hoping that Great Lakes Fleet is just rotating their classic lakers and not that this may the beginning of her end.
 I believe that the Philip R. Clarke is a close sister to the Arthur M. Anderson, so it's kind of like seeing her.
 Again, I'm not entirely positive where she is heading but I'm going to guess it is either Gary or Conneaut.
 A shot of her pilothouse.
 And her deckhouse.  She is still steam powered but I'm not sure how long she is going to stay that way.
She continues down the St. Marys River.
