Rivers



Rivers are a mysterious part of the landscape; they provide a mode of transportation for man and water to the sea. The Mississippi river is the largest river and North America that provides just this purpose; it connects the American heartland to the sea, and effectively divides the continental United States into Eastern States and Western States.

On some nights, I have found that if you travel to a river… you can sense spirits travelling down with the water. Where they go I am not sure, but I can definitely see why so many ancient cultures revered rivers as paths to the other world.

They take the easiest route to the ocean and they are what opened up most countries. We need to treat them better! Thank you for your post and pictures. Have a great weekend.

I am enjoying this focus on your special river Grant.
About how long is the river system and how wide would it be at its widest point

A stream of journey one would want to emulate as it doesn’t flows back, but forth to where it certainly meant to meet and flow continuously and endlessly with the ocean. Oh river…

Asm you amaze me with your words.

Cathy, it is the 4th longest river in the world, and the 10th strongest... for more info. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mississippi_River
