Let's End At The Beginning

Lake Itasca, MN


Where Does the Mississippi River Begin?


I have many posts yet to write about this Great River Road trip. I'll be posting them all winter. But this one is special and I want it to be posted in real time. Today we went to Itasca State Park, MN and stood in the water at the beginning of the Mississippi River.
