On a recent road trip (totaling over 3,300 miles round trip) to Minnesota, I thought I could shed some light on this little known fact about a widely know river.
The Mississippi River starts from Lake Itasca, MN when it simply flows over a merely 12 foot wide rock barrier to my left in the picture. From there, “THE MIGHTY MISSISSIPPI BEGINS TO FLOW ON IT’S WINDING WAY 2552 MILES TO THE GULF OF MEXICO.”
P.S. Also learned that rescue pups can grow up to be brave dogs! Caroline got up to 40mph on the Jet Ski! www.capeannanimalaid.com
