Sunday Snapshot

Paducah is located at the convergence of the Ohio & Tennessee Rivers.  Some days, standing along the water, you can see the difference between the two - the Ohio is usually muddier & is closer to IL than the Tennessee.  

the Tennessee is in the foreground while the muddy bit by those IL trees is the Ohio

Paducah itself was founded by William Clark, Of Lewis & Clark, back in 1827 which is why we have statues of L&C, dog Seaman and Native Americans on the grounds of the museum.  The statues are a visual link to the history of the city and the region.  Here you can see said statues during the snowy day last week!
