The Drechborg Lake Freighter enters the ship canal while the Polsteam
out in the lake waits its turn.
Watching the big ships come and go is entertaining. The shipping schedule and information about the ships and their cargo can be had by grabbing a copy of the Duluth Shipping News available in front of the Lake Superior Marine Museum located in the shadow of the bridge. The Musuem also has monitors showing departures and arrivals, plus some really neat exhibits on the history of shipping on the big lake.
Here the Aerial Lift Bridge lifts to allow an excursion boat to pass through the canal to the inner harbor on its return from a cruise out on the big lake. The bridge is an equal opportunity worker, raising as promptly for a 25 foot pleasure sailboat as it does for a huge commercial 1000 foot Laker.
One of Canal Park's carriages runs adjacent to the Lakewalk in the shadow of the
famous Aerial Lift Bridge that anchors the Canal Park shopping and tourism district
