One push boat with barges that traveled downstream with us. Notice in
the foreground one of the hazards of wingdams---the debris that can get
trapped in the wingdams. I saw one I would have loved to have had a picture
of. An entire mature tree was balanced perfectly on top of a wingdam. Such
items can ensnare a paddler that otherwise may make it across the dam.
All day, all night, they were coming.....
and going, only about 60 feet away, but they sure dried laundry fast.
