Great Lakes shipping: St Clair & Detroit River HD time lapse

this video is a tad long (and quiet… could use some background music or something!), but overall it is a very neat view from a shipping freighter as it makes it way down the St Clair River, into Lake St Clair, and then down the Detroit River and into Lake Erie.

The rivers serve as an important transportation route connecting Lake Michigan, Huron, and Superior to Lake Erie, Ontario, the St. Lawrence Seaway and Erie Canal.

    great film – we sat below the bridge in Sarnia more than a few times, eating chips (fries) , watching the boats go by

      Max – very cool. when I was in high school, we took a school trip up to Michigan’s upper peninsula, and took a boat tour of the Soo Locks. I still remember seeing a man standing out at the end of one of the lock’s wall, playing a bagpipe. it was eerily beautiful to hear the music drift out across the water.
