The Mothball Fleet

Is that one of those infamous Soviet spy trawlers of the cold war? No, it's a side view of one of the rows of the mothball fleet in the Suisun Bay portion of the Sacramento River near Vallejo, California. The fleet contains over 150 merchant and military ships tied together and rusting away. I had some pretty good views of the fleet from the train. Here are a few:
