The headwaters of the Mississippi. John is standing on the rocks between Lake Itasca and the beginning of the Mississippi. It said in the visitors center that it takes three months for a drop of water to makes its way from this spot to the Gulf of Mexico. I wonder how they know that. Did they send a rubber ducky down the river?

  1. That fish looks like the Northern Pike that John caught, large teeth, dorsal fin in the back. Color is awesome, isn’t it?
