Default pix of AMERICAN QUEEN upbound in QC

Greetings from the banks of the Willamette River... in Eugene Oregon! I didn't get these pictures taken Monday posted because I was getting ready for this sojourn to the Left Coast on Tuesday. So, here belatedly are pix of the AQ as she approached the lower end of our harbor, the I -280 bridge and up through Lock 15. (Normally I start down at L&D 16 and work my way up, but not this time due to the time crunch.)
1) approaching the I -280 bridge, with a clearance this day of 60 ft. Note the pilothouse has been partially lowered.
2) note the partially lowered height of the pilothouse, with a crew member eyeballing the bridge
3) the moment of truth

When the river is at normal levels, they lower the pilothouse completely here..
