Tour of Lock & Dam 16 Muscatine, Iowa 8-31-08

Park Ranger, Cindy Klebe, was nice enough to give us a tour of Lock and Dam # 16 in Muscatine, Iowa. They have not given very many this year because of the floods and being Short Staffed. Dennis and I were the only two scheduled but others were there so the ranger asked if they wanted to come along. We walked over the lock gate when there was a barge in the lock. We went out by the gates and it was a very interesting tour.
