Mississippi in Minnesota by HWY 2
Imagine my surprise, driving along Highway 2 (from Wadena to Devil's Lake North Dakota) in Northern Minnesota when I crossed the Mississippi River! While intellectually I knew that the Mississippi started someplace up in Minnesota, I wasn't quite prepared to see it. The mighty Mississippi looks more like a creek than a large river up here in Minnesota. A vastly different appearance than I am used to in Saint Louis, MO.
