Side Channel at Big Blue Island

R Norbut State Fish and Wildlife Area, Scott Co.

Big Blue Island is in the lower Illinois River, about 58 miles upstream from the Mississippi River. This photograph was taken when the river was at a low-water period during late summer, as evidenced by the steep river banks left high and dry.
