As I was driving into St. Louis from Columbia this past weekend I noticed something different in the scenery. Each time I drive back and forth from Columbia to St. Louis I take Highway 40/Interstate 64 which crosses over the Missouri River. When I drove back this time though I noticed the water levels on the river were so low that it was possible to stand right where the middle of the river usually is.
It was a pretty interesting site and I knew I would have to see if I could stand in that part of the exposed portion of the river. As I drove back to Columbia yesterday I made an effort to do so. I had to park perhaps a mile from the river and walk to it. Wearing shorts and boats shoes weren’t the best to wear though.
