Opposite the Mouth of Spoon River

Bellrose Island, Havana

The Spoon River enters the Illinois River opposite the town of Havana. This photograph was taken during the Great Flood of 1993, while canoeing through the forests on Bellrose Island. During large floods of this type, it is possible to float through most of the low-lying floodplain forests.
