You can walk on some of the bridges that cross the Illinois River.
South of the small downtown of Marseilles, main street goes over the Illinois River (the bridge on the right) just west of the Marseilles Lock and Dam (on the left.) The Illinois Waterway connects the Great Lakes to the Gulf of Mexico via the Illinois and Mississippi rivers. This is one of a series of 8 locks, managed by the Army Corps of Engineers, that control water flow from Lake Michigan to the Mississippi River system.
The first of a series of photographs take on a recent motorcycle trip to Marseilles, IL. I love the small towns along the Illinois River, and, this is one of my favorite. Pictured here is my uber-fun to ride Indian Scout Sixty. More to come…
It has been quite a while since I took out my TREK and went for a ride.
It was a gorgeous morning…
Thanks for stopping by.
A quiet moment at the start of the day on a bridge high above the Illinois River.
A chilly wind accompanied this sunrise whispering, “I am winter, and I am coming soon.”
A seagull enjoying the moment.
