Mighty Mississippi

Mighty Mississippi, originally uploaded by chanchanchepon.
Thursday Afternoon, Steve took me to visit Coon Rapids. This area is just a couple of miles from his home in Minnesota. Up here in the North Country the Mississippi River begins. Aside from the numerous islands to be seen, it was very reminiscent of the Ohio River where I grew up. To think, just a few miles down the river (quite a few), Tom Sawyer and Huck Finn had their many adventures on Jackson Island in the middle of the Great River M’shee Thee-pee in its Algonquin/Shawnee rendering.
