Cloudy skies over the Red River and the Hwy. 2 bridge a few miles north of Shreveport (La.) add to the drama of a sweeping panarama from the bank near the boat launch. It's hard to fully appreciate at this size, but an eight-foot mural of this image captures a viewer's full attention and transports one to the riverbank; almost the same sense of awe as being there. If you happen to be traveling from Hosston to Plain Dealing, turn off at this bridge and have a look, but don't expect a paddlewheeler to come by. It's easy to imagine how fine that would be.
