Where the Fleet once called home...

The fleet of the Corps of Engineers used to dock along the Yazoo Diversion Canal just a little piece from downtown Vicksburg on Washington Street. You can see some of the remnants of the warehouses that used to line the street and extend near the river as you drive down the street today. When I took photos of the Sprague the other day, I wandered on down and walked through the woods between the road and the river. All that remains now is pilings and two cool-looking tanks that look like bullet trains. The old tree stump has seen many a high water run through it, but makes a pretty neat looking piece of natural art.
