More from Iowa....Lock and Dam 13

More from Iowa. While we were away we visited Lock and Dam 13 on the Mississippi. Although I have know Russ for 25 years (gulp) I have never visited the Lock and Dam. The kids have visited, but this was my first trip....and it did not disappoint. We were lucky enough to see a barge hauling grain move through the lock and dam. Here are some highlights. Also, if you would like to get a little more technical info on Lock and Dam 13 click HERE.

There was a little waiting involved and Kendall needed just a little TLC (it was lunch time).

Every year we try to get a picture of the grand kids for my mother-in-law, although I took a lot of shots this is the closest I could get to everyone looking at the camera.

This barge was headed for New Orleans and will have a couple week journey to get there! After we watched we headed home and took in a little scenery.
