A lifetime of travel and hours spent reading the exploits of courageous explorers have instilled in me an appreciation for geographic milestones – like walking across the Mississippi River, without a bridge.
On our recent travels we discovered that the Mississippi River’s past is a treasure trove of tales. But if there weren’t historical records to support it, I’d believe that what happened in 1811 was a Tall Tale.
THE fog comes on little cat feet. It sits looking over harbor and city on silent haunches and then moves on. –Carl Sandburg
