Google earth view of the Wabash River lock
Road at lower right allows easy access, but GPS equipment is needed to get here.

Google earth view of the Wabash River at the lock. The lock is on the right hidden by trees. But, note the cribbing of the dam in the river by the islands exposed by low water in late October, 2010
