Mississippi Headwaters Itasca State Park MN
Today I visited Itasca State Park in MN. Which began in 1891 and is MN oldest state park. This is where the Mississippi river starts. The water was so clear and cool but when you go to Louisiana the end of the Mississippi the water is brown, dirty and muddy. Lots of outdoor things to do. Boating, hiking, biking and camping.

Mississippi Headwaters; Itasca State Park MN
The headwaters of the Mississippi River near Bemidji, Minnesota have long been a major attraction for summer tourists in Northwestern Minnesota. At Itasca State Park, you can walk on the rocks and over the shallow stream that actually is the headwaters of the great Mississippi River.
About the Minnesota Arts and Cultural Heritage Fund
In 2008, Minnesota voters passed a landmark piece of legislation — the Minnesota Clean Water, Land, and Legacy Amendment — which provided funding to public television stations serving audiences in Minnesota. Its mission is to help preserve and document the treasures of culture, history, and heritage that make Minnesota special, and to increase access to the natural and cultural resources we all share.
Funded in part by the North Dakota Humanities Council, a nonprofit, independent state partner of the National Endowment for the Humanities.

Itasca, Minnesota State Park, Douglas Lodge, Historic
mikeminnesota spent 3 days at Itasca State Park where the Mississippi starts. Here are some 500 photos to give you some idea what the park and Douglas Lodge is all about. According to Wikipedia, Itasca State Park, is a state park of Minnesota, United States, and is the headwaters of the Mississippi River. The park spans 32,690 acres of northern Minnesota, and is located about 21 miles (34 km) north of Park Rapids, Minnesota. Itasca State Park was established by the Minnesota Legislature on April 20, 1891, making it the first of Minnesota's state parks and second oldest in the United States, behind Niagara Falls State Park. Henry Schoolcraft explorer determined Lake Itasca as the river's source in 1832. Most of the area has a heavy growth of timber that includes virgin red pine, which is also Minnesota's state tree. It was named as a National Natural Landmark in 1965, and was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1973. About 500,000 people visit Itasca State Park annually.
