Thanks for the pics Bob.
I've been living here since 1973, and this is the first time I've "seen" it.

Jer, my wife read about the headwaters and adventures to it while we were in Louisiana, so we mapped out a trip to MN to follow as much of the river as possible. We saw a lot of beautiful and interesting areas between. You see this massive river draining into the ocean and we would go into areas that were in drought for years. thanks Bob
