crossroads, street corners

Not much better place to stand

Watch the passing show

If I had to pick ONE place in all of America where I could stand and watch the parade of American history pass in front of me there might not be a better a place than where I took this picture.

This is the Ohio River near Ravenswood, West Virginia.

My wife and I were driving from South Carolina to Columbus, Ohio when we crossed over the river.

Few places have seen the history float by like this place.

The Native Americans without numbers, the French, the British and the Americans and who knows who else took this nearly 1000 mile east-west super highway.

Quiet today.

Ignored today.

A backwater today.

But think of what you would have seen in the last 1000 years from this little river crossing.
