Favorite Duluth sinkholes

The sinkhole above, on the Raleigh Street spur to the DWP Trail, is huuuuge. Can anyone beat it? Will we need to get out the tape measures?

I concede, of course, that though it is much larger than the sinkhole Nate Lindstrom posted about in 2010 (shown below), it doesn’t exceed that one in terms of comedy. Maybe I need a model.

It's hard to tell how big that sinkhole is. Perhaps you should have included a baby for scale.

Not in Duluth but I defy you to step on a sidewalk crack lightly after watching.

The original sink hole at the top of this thread was filled in by the city before the flood. I just walked by it again recently and, well, you can guess.
