Default the mixing of the waters...

1) As we leave Grafton on the Illinois, you can look over to the Mississippi on the other side of the islands. Because there are gaps between islands for several miles above this, there isn't any obvious mingling of waters here.
2) The obligatory 'paddlewheel with bluffs in background' shot This is on the Mississippi, the Piasa Bluffs above Alton.
3) a portion of the new suspension bridge at Alton. This replaces the old US 67 bridge, which was just downstream from a railroad swingspan and old L&D 26, all of which are no longer there. That is the state flag of Illinois.
