Can we count on you to make a coast-to-coast transit your next project! Looks like fun, even for we of a certain age...

As you can see from this photo - the tow path makes an excellent route for cycling too. And walkers. No traffic or roads to cross. Friends often take their canoes for a paddle. Others just go fishing. Maybe just a walk in silence - except for the occasional canalside pub where they have a kids playground. And the ducks quacking. (No shooting allowed)

Thanks Travel Rob! We are from Chicago, but we've spent a lot of time in Missouri the last few years. We've really grown to appreciate all it has to offer.

Great post! America has lots of great out of the way places worth exploring and I'd like to get to this one someday. I love to canoe and the Current River sure looks inviting. Is there a long stretch of the river you can paddle? Can you rent a canoe there?

The Current River is amazing. It's around 185 miles, but in the area we were (in Salem) they do canoe trips as long as 65 miles or so. There are multiple canoe rental places near there, doing everything from short 4 hour canoe trips to multi-day camping canoe trips as well.

Some "modern art" leaves me cold but that image is thought provoking and lets the mind wander - as it has yours ! Nice piece DrF !

Stunning...and hard to imagine a better place for it. Curious: how big is it? In the close-up I get the impression they could be full-size boats?

Yes, they are all full size boats. Say an average of 4 meters (13 ft) each? Vegas is becoming a great place to see modern art.

The word "audacious" comes to mind and, I think, appropriately. I think it's always been one of Art's jobs to make the viewer's say "What the hell?", and public art of this scale especially. It makes one want to meet the person whose mind conceived it. Good work, Nancy Rubins. ("crafted" indeed, DrF.)

Why Missouri is Not just a Fly Over State

DangTravelers ·
What do you think of when asked about the state of Missouri?  A few years ago, all that would come to mind were the cities of St. Louis and Branson, but not much else.  It was a pass-through state to many other destinations for us, but never...

 Situated in the heart of Las Vegas' City Center, in the middle of many beautifully designed skyscrapers, is a sort of traffic jam.  Or a "boat jam", if you wish.  It's an unusual work of art crafted by Nancy Rubins and known as "Big...

England gets a coast-to-coast canoe route

Paul Heymont ·
It's now (nearly) possible to paddle all the way across England in a canoe. The only obstacles are canal locks that require portage, and rights to a tunnel that are still being negotiated.   The project, connecting Liverpool to the Humber...
