10. St Paul to Madison, via Duluth

We took a cool cruise around the Duluth Harbor and out into Lake Superior, the guide was extremely knowledgeable about the history of the area, the ships coming and going, Lake Superior and the St. Louis River which empties into the lake here to form the port.  If you're a glutton for punishment we'll tell you some of the 500 puns he also shared with us.  Something far more interesting and worth your time is the three-minute time lapse video of the harbor activities posted each day on the link above.  The 1000' ships cruise around like little power boats and the bridge in the top picture comes down like a guillotine.  Not sure what it goes up like, any ideas?
