Edward "Ted" and Pat Jones-Confluence Point State Park, Missouri - July 22, 2005

First stop on the Charles and Jill tour -- the park at the confluence of the Missouri and Mississippi Rivers.


Not at the park, yet. This is in Florissant, Missouri. [2048x1536]

Crossing the Missouri River on US 67. [2048x1536]

The bridge carrying US 67 to Alton. Illinois. More on this later. [2048x1536]

The road to the confluence park. [2048x1536]

[2048x1536]

Along the trail from the parking lot, there seems to be some dredging going on in the Missouri just before it ends. [2048x1536]

The low Missouri. [2048x1536]

[2048x1536]

The dredging barges. [2048x1536]

The path. This shade is good on a 95-degree, humid, sunny day. [2048x1536]

Looking through at the trees at two barges loaded up with sand. [2048x1536]

[2048x1536]

At the confluence. Charles and Jill visit often and hadn't seen the river this low before. [2048x1536]

[2048x1536]

[2048x1536]

Don't fall in. [2048x1536]

The Mississippi. This is definitely Mississippi mud. [2048x1536]

The tower in the distance is the Lewis and Clark Confluence Tower in Hartford, Illinois. [2048x1536]

The mixing of the Mississippi on the left, Missouri on the right. [2048x1536]

Tugging one of the barges. [2048x1536]

Looking upstream on the Missouri from the confluence. [2048x1536]

Back up to the park. The flagpole way up was erected to show the high-water mark from the Flood of '93. [2048x1536]

Back at the parking lot. [2048x1536]
