Hannibal Locks and Dam

On our trip up the Ohio River last week, Adam and I stopped at the Hannibal Locks and Dam, Mile 126.4. It was a warm, sunny February day. On the West Virginia side, we got a good look at the 1980s-era hydroelectric plant.

On the Ohio side, we discovered that the upper approach to the locks is a good place to get up close to boats, in this case the M/V Nancy Sturgis of Crounse Corp.

And if you go past the dam itself, you can still get a good view of the boats if you're willing to look or shoot through the chain link security fence.

I hope we can get back up there this summer when leaves are on the trees. Or somehow find the money  to get down to Paducah. That would be okay, too.

If you get to Paducah let me know - I have an office there.
