Default Finally! A Steamboat!!!!

Despite floods, droughts, plagues of locusts, pestilence and M.A.L., the Upper Mississippi has a steamboat plying its waters again! Here are some shots of the AMERICAN QUEEN as she was coming upriver from L&D 16 this evening. These shots were taken at about mile 464 UMR. As I type, she should be approaching Linwood and Horse Island area, just below our 'harbor' defined by the I-280 bridge. I'll be heading over to L&D 15 and thence to Oneida St. for their Davenport landing. The QUEENS don't stop on the upbound, but this is an 11-night trip with hotel nights, so they are making more stops.

Only thing more goose-bumpy to me while awaiting the appearance of a boat than coming out from behind an island is coming into view 'round the bend!
