Mississippi River, South of the Chain of Rocks


Since the construction of the Chain of Rocks Canal, the stretch of Mississippi River between the entrances of that canal is the longest portion of the navigable channel without barge or large boat traffic. It is sublimely beautiful, and worth seeing in person on a boat in the middle of the river. See more pictures of the old Chain of Rocks Bridge here.
