Carletta said...

This is the Ohio River between West Virginia and Ohio at Parkersburg. You are looking down on the river from the WV side.

James said...

Great capture Carletta. I love pictures like this.

The house that is jutting out over the rocks in my photo would probably cost over 10 million dollars, but I found a smaller one that you can have for $7,350,000 USD = 3br or a 2br condo for 1.6 million.
Good thing real estate prices are down. lol

Bim said...

Looks like a good outing. I'd be curious to know which river this is as well.

judi said...

Your EG Tour Guide said...

This must be the Ohio River, right? Isn't it the one that's between Ohio and West Virginia. (I hope I'm remembering my geography correctly and that you're not laughing your head off at me!)

diane said...
