The Indiana Harbor Downbound at St Clair

After catching the Alpena at Marine City, I decided to head up to St Clair to catch the next pair of ships.
 The first ship that I caught was the Indiana Harbor.
 She was on her way to Zug Island in Detroit.
 That probably means that she would have been carrying taconite.  Taconite is refined iron ore.  Most of the pure iron ore has been mined, so they have to refine it.
 Zug Island would be about 4 hours from this point.
 I'm not sure how many runs she has left in the season but I think she's getting pretty close, especially since the Soo Locks close in a week.
 And my favorite aspect of the Indiana Harbor.
 I still would love a bumper sticker version of that.
And she continues on her way.
