Swan Song for the levee trip

I recently discovered that the first leg of my favorite levee trip, starting east of Moscow, Arkansas is now no longer available. The last time I topped the levee a few weeks ago and prepared to turn southeast I saw a locked gate barring my entrance.

I was bitterly disappointed since the now-barred section is the first leg of my favorite run of the levees for the last 25 years or so. The disappointment brought to mind my levee run of October 2013 when I was fortunate enough to be accompanied by my granddaughter, Madison Dempsey. It was a bit longer than usual. We left the levee at Arkansas City, Arkansas. Along the way, we paid a visit to the banks of Big Muddy, the mighty Mississippi River.

Since that trip in its entirety is now not possible, we are revisiting the said former excursion this week. Click on the cow to see our original October 2013 post. Click here to see our original Corndancer Photo of the Week story on the trip.

This trip is a good reminder that those things put off may never come to fruition.

As in never.

Thanks for looking,

Joe Dempsey
