Gateway Arch: Captains' Return Again

This is interesting because it illustrates the changeability of the Mississippi River in a very short period of time.  I took this photo last Saturday, September 12 from a river boat.

On September 3, just 9 days earlier, I took a shot right at the water's edge from the bottom of the pile of rubble at the base of the Eads Bridge tower on the right.  I posted that day, so go back if you haven't seen it.

I shot the picture so that Lewis and Clark appeared to be coming ashore.

Here is another picture taken on that day which shows that the boat is really only a half a boat, and also shows the water level on the levee.
