To keep things from being confusing (especially if you follow our real-time adventures on Instagram) – I’m a few weeks behind in blogging, here are some of our adventures from the week of August 9, 2015.
In between our special days with our family in Bemidji, Minnesota, we took a day and drove about 45 minutes to Itasca State Park to see the famous headwaters of the Mississippi River.
Within the Itasca State Park is the Mary Gibbs Mississippi Headwaters Center a National River interpretive center. It has some great displays with facts about the Mississippi river – including the interesting history of the river.
Just a short walk from the Mary Gibbs Mississippi Headwaters Center are the headwaters of the Mississippi!
