The Mississippi


Anytime you fly out of Jackson, Mississippi (JAN) on American Eagle Airlines, you go to Dallas, Texas (DFW). In order to do this you fly over one of the greatest, if not the greatest river in North America… the Mississippi River. I remember seeing it when flying to DFW the first time, I was a little crest fallen… I expected something a little grander. And then I realised that you see the Mississippi River, and you do not see many other rivers from that height, so that gave me a clue to its size. Now I look forward to seeing it when I fly, almost like saying hello to an old friend.

I love your river with all its esses, i's and p's, Grant. It IS a huge river if you can see it from the sky. We live on the Nile here in North Africa and have to cross it a few times when travelling from home to the city. Have a blessed weekend.

Jo, I would love to see a photo of the Nile... It is a dream of mine to see many of the famous Rivers in the world... so far I only have two down... The River Thames and the Mississippi...

I have never seen the Mississippi although my family harkens from Tennessee way back when.
