The Mississippi Queen

While in La Crosse, we take advantage of The Mississippi Queen. Technically MQ #7, she is only two months old and is a true sternwheeler boat; that is, only the paddle wheel provides power.

Waiting to Board

The trip is quite short, only up to Dam & Lock #10, but fun none the less.

Since many pictures of the MS River have already been posted, only a few are included which show our progression through the rail road bridge which had to swing open for us, and the dam & locks up river.
