Default Mississippi Queen pictures, and 2 videos!

Hello fellow steamboaters,

Earlier this summer when the Magnificent Mississippi Queen visited Gallipolis, I got a few pics of her at the landing, and some more of her heading up river past Point. I also got two videos. The first one is kinda bad because there are people talking in the background, and you can hear the whistle, but not real well. The other is just a video of the boat passing the cityfront.

Enjoy! :-)

Video of the whistle being sounded. Turn the volume up at the start of the vid to hear it.
