The Mississippi River originates in Minnesota and after wiggling through the state it becomes the state border for numerous states as it travels to the Gulf of Mexico. Along the northern portions of the river are bluffs rising 500-600 feet above the water's surface. The photos on these pages were taken in Minnesota and Wisconsin.
