Bridge at sunset

If you want to see Huntington's Robert C. Byrd Bridge at sunset, try this one. I got it yesterday evening when I went down  to the river to get a photo of a boat coming by. I found the bridge to be a more interesting subject at that time of day.

I'm linking to my Flickr site because I post higher-resolution photos there than I do here, for various reasons. And this one needs to be seen in higher resolution.

Industrial disasters in the Ohio Valley

A Web site known as Listverse has come out with a list of the Top 10 recent industrial disasters in the US. Four entries on the list are in the Ohio River valley, with two of those along the river itself. The entries:

10: The Silver Bridge collapse.

8: The Donoroa smog.

7: The Buffalo Creek flood near Logan, W.Va.

6: The Willow Island power plant cooling tower collapse.
