I ran across this picture of Needles, 1961, and saw the Ski Jump. It has been out of the river since about 1964, but I was looking at the Drag Races in Wisconsin 8/22 and saw a ski jump in the river. Some places must not have much river traffic or maybe they think the people are smart enough to miss them. I also noted, no lights on the jump.

If they had a ski jump in the river now, I'll bet someone would hit it everyday.

Our new, 225 foot water front lot is 4 blocks down the river from where this picture was taken.
