This is where the Mississippi River begins its journey through the beautiful landscapes of Minnesota, before it flows past nine other states into the Gulf of Mexico. In summer, adults become kids again as they tiptoe across the wet stones. Then in the quiet of winter, the power of place is enhanced as the endless flow goes under Minnesota ice.
