This week, the water of the Ohio River was crystal clear, affording views all the way down to the bottom of the river. At least the shallow portions close to shore. With the muddy river waters made clear, a phenomenon that happens from time to time, it’s interesting to see what lies half buried in silt beneath the surface.
Here’s one sunken treasure that’s been sitting in its watery grave for years. We’ve also seen bikes, trash cans, traffic cones, schools of slender gar fish, and assorted car parts on various clear-water days.
