The AIS destination for the Capt. Henry Jackman said "Chicago...One Day."   On Saturday they finally made here after some ice and weather delay on the way. The ice on the Calumet River provides little resistance as she passes under the 92nd St. bridge just after sunrise with an assist from the G Tugs Massachusetts and Colorado.

US 6 bridge over the railroad leading to the former ore docks.  The railroad was loading stone into rail cars from the pile to the right last summer.  You can see where the former Hulett unloaders once stood and one of the tracks that ran under it can be seen.  A small marine repair facility has set up shop on the former docks and apparently may be doing some work on the Cornelius and/or Boland while in layup.
