The photographer says: My wife and I were in Duluth celebrating our 3rd wedding anniversary this past weekend. We went to visit Enger Tower at the top of the hill in Duluth where you have a breathtaking view of the Duluth-Superior Harbor. While we were there, we watch the MV Paul R. Tregurtha plow through the late season ice and come through the Duluth Ship Canal. I’d never watched a ship come in from this high vantage point. Very cool!

The Tregurtha is currently the “Queen of the Lakes”, meaning she is the largest vessel currently in operation on the Great Lakes. She was completed in 1981 and is 1013 feet and 6 inches long. She was in Duluth to refuel and pick up a load of coal from the Midwest Energy terminal.
