July 3 - The Mighty Mississippi

Minnesota is a wild and woodsy place. We were amazed at how many resorts and trees we found.
We were caught in what, back home, we'd call a gully washer, but here was little more than an afternoon shower. No wonder there's water all over the place.
We made our way to Itasca State Park to visit the headwaters of the Mississippi River. We enjoyed wading from shore to shore.
Candleman figured out how George managed to throw a silver dollar across the Patomac River.
This was a cool refreshing and fun filled break.

So now you can say you waded across the Mississippi. Pretty impressive!
