This past Tuesday I went by the Louisiana Overlook at Vicksburg to see if anything was coming and could not see a towboat pushing two empty barges until it cleared the trees to the left. It was a very cloudy day and the clouds really looked ominous.
It's good to see the sandbars out after the Great Flood of 2011.
Up close view of the Maritime towboat.
I saw this one come out from the Yazoo Canal as I drove up around the circle.
The General towboat must have dropped off a load of grain at the Port of Vicksburg since the barge is now empty.
Passing in the wind and on the mighty Mississippi!
The General going under the bridges with a train passing overhead with...
...another towboat with loaded barges getting ready to make the wide turn in the bend going south.
