Paddlewheel On A Riverboat

In New Orleans, the riverboat is queen of the waterway. Never mind those huge cargo ships floating by every now and then. At the mouth of the Mississippi, one of these could take you to St. Louis or even Hannibal, MO – childhood home of Mark Twain himself, who was quite the able steamboat pilot in his day.
