From Fort Defiance Park in Cairo, Il, that’s the Route 60 bridge over the Ohio . . . at the very end of the Ohio.  The confluence is behind me.  Tug is ADM’s American Pillar.  Note the barges and tugs along the far bank.

Less than a quarter mile away, along the Mississippi bank, it’s AEP’s Michael G. Morris.  The bridge is the Mississippi crossing of Route 60.
