Up Close & Personal

Today was Engineer's Day at the Soo Locks. That means the public is admitted to parts of the Locks complex that are usually off limits. It was possible to see boats lock thru from a new vantage point. I saw the Algosoo downbound.

The Soo Locks Visitor Center has a new way to follow the progress of boats. The AIS system has a display that shows current real time location and direction of ships.
