Stuck in the Mud



I have run aground but will be back to regular posting on Monday. In the meantime, savor this vintage October 1958 shot of the Mark Twain in a very dry Rivers of America. Note the track of the Twain, which makes for a perfect journey every time.

Now that's a double-take photo. Mark Twain runs aground on the sand bar.

Outstanding shots, Dave. I've always wondered about the soil that was under the Rivers of America from the early days. I know, of course, of the oft-told tale that clay was brought in to line the riverbed. I find that a less permeable soil was brought in, graded and rolled, but pure clay: I don't think so. This picture seems to bear that opinion out. Thanks.
