A couple of things

A day or two ago, I saw this towboat, the Dennis Ross, passing Huntington, W.Va.

This morning, I was out and about and got a few fog shots. Here's one of downtown Huntington with the remains of the fog clinging to the river's surface.

And here's Defender United Methodist Church, between Chesapeake and Proctorville, Ohio. It faces the Ohio River and an old industrial neighborhood of Huntington. This morning's fog shrouded an old barge that's been beached on the riverbank near the church for a long time.

Yeah, the fall colors along the river here around Mile 306 are so-so. Not as good as last year. A few areas up on the ridges are nice, but nothing like last year. Even a tree that usually is pretty good went dull this year.
