The mighty Kanawha River rolls lazily through the valley making it’s way to join the Ohio River on its way South. The sheltering shade of the Oak and Sycamore invite me to escape the heat of the midday sun.Image Titled “The Alabama Headed Upstream 71420b”
The cloudless sky merges it’s hue with river as the unmistakable sound of a tow boat announces that a barge is moving back upstream for another load of coal.

It’s the Alabama. I know very little about life onboard one of these boats but I’ve always thought that converting one for touring the Eastern river system.
The boat soon motors out of sight and the wake subsidies once more into a consistent texture leaving me to settle back onto the tailgate of the big blue truck and enjoy the gentleness of the shade and river. And of course, watch the Cardnial as he returns to the railing of the old gang plank.
