I gather from this article sent along by Jim McCrea that the death knell has rung for ferry Binghamton.  See my posts here, here, and here.  Alas, and all while being listed on the NJ and US Register of Historic Places . . . so much for that.    Thanks, Jim.

An end comes for everything.  Of course, false ends can be confusing.  When Binghamton reached the end of its ferry life, she turned night spot.  Here’s a 1926 Buick turned locomotive to run mail and passengers up into the mountains.

along the Utah/Colorado border.

Note the people off to the left.  Water, wind, and time scour away softer parts, making strange shapes with the more resistant, and  scouring

the rest.  That’s the Colorado in the distance looking

to continue its sculpting of the Canyonlands into buttes and mesas.
