Signs - Mighty Mississippi


A sign at the beginning of the Mississippi River, in Itasca State Park, Minnesota. Here is a picture (from the internet) that gives you a better idea - you can either walk across the stepping stones or wade through the water. It's only about a foot deep here.

Nice. I bet you didn't wade across it at this time of year. I used to dream of seeing the Mississippi and now I live in the Midwest and have crossed it in several places. I am awed every time.

Very cool. I remember studying about the Mississippi River in grade school. In the early nineties, we lived 11 miles from it when we were on the western side of TN.

It does grow a lot as it travels that's for sure! Cool place there.

Wow, it's beautiful.

I have heard this year the Mississippi River is very low this year and may have to limit traffic.

You should have put your kayak into the water and started the journey! Think of the photo ops! Think of the mosquitos! Think of the COLD!!

But no matter how cold you get, do NOT build a fire in your kayak. Because you can't have your kayak and heat it, too.

Interesting place and sign. "A journey of 1,000 miles begins with a single step." Doesn't take that river long to become mighty.
