Our Trip is Over!!
When we started our trip down the Mississippi, there were several closed locks due to flooding. We watched the lock outflow reports and saw that the water levels were dropping at a rate so they should be open when we arrived. That happened, though we were the first through on several locks. We completed our journey to Mobile and met our wives in New Orleans, but with th
e additional rain in the Midwest, many of the Mississippi locks are closed and still increasing in outflow height. This means that it could be several weeks before the locks reopen, so . . .
I booked flights home for June 3rd and Steve and I will drive back to mobile with my trailer and return my boat to Minnesota. A 5 day trip that should be uneventful (not waiting for locks to open!)
Here are a bunch of photos that show our trip down the river.
