Mississippi Oil

Part 2 of 17 in the New Orleans series

When we think of the Mighty Mississippi, we often think of barges and steamboats. But head to the lower Mississippi River, and you’ll see ocean-going vessels like this one. Between Baton Rouge and the Gulf, the US Army Corps of Engineers maintains a 45-foot shipping channel for these larger ships, and it’s impressive watching them push upstream.
