First lockage of the 2012 season

SAULT STE. MARIE, Mich. - The Canadian Coast Guard Cutter Samuel Risley breaks through some light ice in the Poe Lock, March 16. Though not the much anticipated first freighter through the locks, the season for the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers always starts with the locking of upbound icebreakers to open the harbors and bays of Lake Superior.(U.S. Army Corps of Engineers photo by Kim Dautremont)
