Lake Itasca, Minnesota. Headwaters of the Miss. River. Visitors usually perform the ritual of stepping across the stones, proclaiming that they "walked across the Miss. River." 10/07

    The calmness of headwaters is always a little disappointing (but lovely), because they don't compare to the mighty rivers they feed. Yet this is a lovely photo, and the information about walking across the river on the stones is interesting.

    What a lovely idea! I agree with Judy....I've several headwaters, and it always amazes me how small and innocuous they are compared to what they become. Great shot, Donald!

    Interesting picture and story behind it. I wonder how many people fall in stepping across the stones.

  • Donald Garrett

    Donald Garrett   said (10 Sep 2009):

    No, we didn't walk across. I wasn't feeling well that day and decided I didn't want to risk slipping and falling in! Just before I took that shot, there was a busload of school kids on a field trip who monopolized the place...glad to see them go!
