Itasca State Park, Minnesota: Headwaters (disputed) of Mississippi River
Date: June 2012
Duration: 0 hours 28 minutes
Audio Journeys explore the (disputed) headwaters of the Mississippi River with park rangers. A trail takes us to a spring coming out of the ground in the Minnesota mountains. The spring forms a pool before gliding from the rocks to become the mighty Mississippi River, most people believe. Itasca is a derivative of two Greek words, true and source.
