Travel photo of the day
First light over Island 67
As I stood looking out at the river, enjoying the first warmth of the rising sun, watching the water ripple as my island parted it on its journey to the sea, the view was positively priceless. Island 67 is seventeen river miles south of Clarksdale, Miss., in the middle of the Mississippi River. I had made camp on the island the night before. This shot was taken at first light facing south. So what you see is the southern tip of Island 67 in the foreground, the Mississippi Delta on the left side of the river and a small piece of Arkansas on the right.
