Here a images taken on the Chain of Rocks Bridge just north of
St. Louis, Missouri . This bridge is open only to pedestrian traffic now,
but was once part of the historic Route 66. The bridge overlooks the mighty
Mississippi River and during the winter months one can do a little eagle
watching from this historic bridge.
On one photo (above) you can actually see the "chain of rocks"
just under the surface of the Mississippi which caused the Army Corps
of Engineers to build a canal around this phenomenon, diverting barge
traffic through the canal instead of getting hung up on the rocks.
Many thanks to Jane Linders for photos and info. The
