Catching up, 3/18/2017

Here are a few photos from the past six weeks or so that missed getting on here because I was always tinkering with them.

First, the M/V Steven J. Mason downbound at about Mile 302 or 303.

The M/V Georgetown a couple of miles below the Racine Locks and Dam.

If you want to give someone the idea that a place is dangerous, tell them that it's full of needles left behind by drug users. The thing is, I have heard that about several places, but I had never found a needle until last month, when this one floating was with some drift and trash.

The stacks of the Gavin power plant,

Under the Russell, Ky., side of the Ironton-Russell Bridge, currently in the process of being dismantled.

What was it NBC said back in the 1990s when it wanted us to watch "Seinfeld" reruns? If you haven't seen it, it's new to you? The M/V Chris has been around a while, but this was the first time I saw it here in the Huntington area. At least I don't offhand remember having seen it before.

And here's the M/V Hoosier State passing Huntington one evening as darkness was afalling.

That's about it for now. I've seen where some boats that I'm not familiar with have been passing through my area lately, but not when I've been able to get down to the river. We'll have to see if that changes this spring.
