Several years ago my mother and I took a trip on a nearby river on an excursion boat. We went upriver probably about twenty miles or so. We went through at least one set of locks, and it was fascinating to be on the boat as the lock mechanisms raised or lowered the boat, whichever was needed. It was an interesting trip, particularly when I thought of all the history which took place on and along that river.
