Dig it!

This site is down river from New Orleans in Pointe a la Hatche. The TECO terminal there brings in various forms of coal and coke (coke is the carbon residuals from the petroleum refining process). They blend all the various types to get the desired burning characteristics for electric generating plants in Florida.

Large industrial facilities line much of the Mississippi River both below and above New Orleans.

In truth, where would this country be without the Father of Waters? I don't want to imagine how history would have to be re-written.

I like all of your photos, as I love your city, but the photos of the past few days days have been particularly beautiful and interesting, I think.

That's a pretty cool photo. It looks almost like a toy model of a quarry.
