Mighty Mississippi

The Mississippi River is a working river.    Riverboats push cargo – mostly Midwestern grain – up and down the Mississippi’s entire length.

This boat is pushing its load south on the Mississippi River and is at the confluence of the Wisconsin River, which enters from the right.  The photo was taken from the bluffs of Wyalusing State Park at Prairie du Chien, Wisconsin – one of the oldest towns in America.  A French trading post was established here in 1685.
