Riding the "Channel Cat"

It was a beautiful sunny day in the Quad Cities this morning. I took my family to ride the water taxi, the "Channel Cat." . Although the Mississippi has dropped below flood stage here in the Quad Cities it is still very high and there is still a great deal of water flowing. Here is a picture I took of the normally tame river. Click on the picture to see it full sized.

The Army Corps of Engineers has still not opened the locks for barge traffic so we pretty much had the river to ourselves.
