Hi, Carmen & Pete:
Carmen, thanks for the great link and I'll be looking for more pictures on this thread.

Pete, you're right about the scenery etc. Been years and years since I made that trip and note that much looks familiar but there have been new structures built along with restoration/preservation of the vitage buildings. The river piers/wharves we see were not there then. Thirty-seven years is a long time ago.

A number of the old steamers were still in operation then. I noted right off the lack of whistles while steaming on the river between the high hills and bluffs. Whistle sounds would bounce and be confusing to the pilots. A system of signal flags were used aboard the boats visible to others going up and down stream.

Cheers,
R. Dale Flick
