I saw something on the news about two weeks ago regarding flooding further upriver.
Nice pix, hopefully it will not get higher.
Good to see you are out and riding!
Mississippi River - I grew up in New Orleans area, ships,Towboats and barges made for interesting sights.
I worked at a shipyard briefly, LNG tankers, Zapata Oil Rigs were under construction.
Propeller shaft line bore, welding cast steel prop/rudder section to steel plate sections were interesting
things I saw.
A few notable high water marks were made.
The "Old River control structure" almost failed in 1973.
