Towboat Ron W. Callengan going under the bridges.
A beautiful day in the neighborhood!
Took a picture of this towboat but was not readable.
Another towboat with the name Ingram Barge Co., pushing barges upstream.
Bend in the river at Vicksburg, MS.
Getting ready to make the wide turn.
Went by the overlook yesterday and looked down and the towboat Ron W. Callegen was headed downstream towards the bridges and as that one was going under two more were headed upstream. The river was abuzz yesterday with the roar of engines pushing barges. You could even smell the fumes in the air while a train blew it's whistle approaching the old Hwy 80 bridge crossing the mighty Mississippi. Here are a few pix I took of the river traffic passing by my hometown.
