Now that I got that out of the way, I finally explain just what I'm trying to show you. I just wanted to share how big this one river can really get. I never think of a river as being so big. Oh sure the Detroit River, where I grew up, gets even bigger, but I kind of had the idea that it was unique in this way.
So much fresh water. I always imagine this part of the country as being kind of dry, without any bigger rivers. I think of the great plains, with endless corn fields and things like that. Here in the picture it seems that the water goes on forever. It seemed like that when I was there too.
That's all I really wanted to say. I was just a little awed by how much water there can be in some places. How much water surrounds us on our planet. I have a small fear of so much water surrounding me. I would sink like a stone. I think these thoughts as I sit here sipping on a bottle of water. Talk to you later.
