Just as impressive was seeing the Mighty Mississippi full of ice - not even a small navigation channel of open water remained at Alton. Several barges were surrounded by the ice and didn't look like they'll be going anywhere for a while. Slabs of broken ice were stacked up so thick you couldn't tell this was a river as nothing was moving on the surface. We can't remember the last time we've seen anything like this, and we're hoping to get back there in a day or two. With the camera this time!

SUNDAY we did get back to the river and the Lewis & Clark bridge to take some photos of the ice and one of the trapped barges.
