April 2019 Mississippi River Cruise
In April 2019, I was part of a tour of 34 people from Sun City Palm Desert, California, who traveled from Palm Springs, California, to Memphis, Tennessee, for a 8-day cruise on the American Queen Steamboat Company's boat, Duchess. We were doing the Lower Mississippi Cruise, and it was absolutely delightful.
New Orleans - Louisiana - U.S Cities
New Orleans is a major United States port and the largest city and metropolitan area in the state of Louisiana. The population of the city proper was 343,829 as of the 2010 U.S. Census. The New Orleans metropolitan area had a population of 1,167,764 in 2010 and was the 46th largest in the United States. The New Orleans--Metairie--Bogalusa Combined Statistical Area, a larger trading area, had a 2010 population of 1,214,932.
The city is named after Philippe d'Orléans, Duke of Orléans, Regent of France, and is well known for its distinct French Creole architecture, as well as its cross-cultural and multilingual heritage. New Orleans is also famous for its cuisine, music (particularly as the birthplace of jazz), and its annual celebrations and festivals, most notably Mardi Gras. The city is often referred to as the most unique in America.
New Orleans is located in southeastern Louisiana, straddling the Mississippi River. The boundaries of the city and Orleans Parish are coterminous. The city and parish are bounded by the parishes of St. Tammany to the north, St. Bernard to the east, Plaquemines to the south and Jefferson to the south and west. Lake Pontchartrain, part of which is included in the city limits, lies to the north and Lake Borgne lies to the east. ( source Wikipedia )

Bayou Lafourche, originally called Chetimachas River is a 106-mile-long (171 km) bayou in southeastern Louisiana, United States, that flows into the Gulf of Mexico. The first settlements of Acadians in southern Louisiana were near Bayou Lafourche and Bayou des Écores, which led to a close association of the bayou with Cajun culture. Today, approximately 300,000 Louisiana residents drink water drawn from the bayou.
The name Lafourche is from the French word for fork, and alludes to the bayou's large outflow of Mississippi River water. It was formerly a Mississippi River outlet, but was dammed at Donaldsonville in 1905. The dam cut off nourishment and replenishment of a huge wetland area of central Louisiana. It changed the formerly flowing bayou into a stagnant ditch.
A project to reconnect Bayou Lafourche to the Mississippi River at Donaldsonville is under design. The plan is to use a control structure to regulate the water discharge. The purpose is to mitigate the accelerated land loss that followed the interruption of the distributary flow, and to improve water quality in the bayou.
The bayou is paralleled by Louisiana Highway 1 on the west, and on the east by Louisiana Highway 308. It flows through parts of Ascension, Assumption, and Lafourche parishes.
The film Southern Comfort is set in the Bayou Lafourche.

Possible Mississippi River Channel Switch?--Phenomenon Explained
Due to changes at Old River and increasing sedimentation, a channel switch for the Mississippi River to follow the Atchafalaya River's path to the Gulf of Mexico is becoming more likely, with all that stands in the way of this being the Old River Control Structures and the US Army Corps of Engineers' eternal vigilance.
How would a theoretical channel switch occur? What are the most likely locations (Which one has an ominous name?)? What would be the consequences for New Orleans? Baton Rouge? The Lower Atchafalaya Basin? The rest of the United States? What can be done to prepare for this event? All of these questions are answered in today's episode.

For the effects on industrial plants on the Mississippi River, I reached out to BASF, Dow, Shell, Exxon, Entergy, Dupont, and the Port of South Louisiana to get some comments on the consequences of a channel switch. Unfortunately none of these companies responded to my requests.
Federal Law prevented me from recording around power plants and critical infrastructure, so please excuse the footage of boats sailing down the Mississippi used as a replacement.

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.

Lusiana is a small town in the province of Vicenza, Veneto, Italy. It is west of SP72, and is situated at about 750 metres above sea level on the Asiago plateau.
New Orleans is a Louisiana city on the Mississippi River, near the Gulf of Mexico. Nicknamed the Big Easy, it's known for its round-the-clock nightlife, vibrant live-music scene and spicy, singular cuisine reflecting its history as a melting pot of French, African and American cultures. Embodying its festive spirit is Mardi Gras, the late-winter carnival famed for raucous costumed parades and street parties.
VALLEY OF THE GIANT U.S. ARMY CORPS OF ENGINEERS MISSISSIPPI RIVER PROJECTS 49794
The United States Army and the Mississippi River Commission explain the importance of the Mississippi River as a major trade waterway in “Valley of the Giant,” a black-and-white from the 1940s. A map (mark 00:55) shows the Mississippi River and its many outlets as the narrator explains its importance and its reach of over 1 million square miles, draining water from more than 30 states and two Canadian provinces. We listen to the slap of paddle wheels on the river (mark 03:17) and see large freighters and ocean vessels make their way through the water as the narrator continues to explain its importance to shipping, linking the Great Lakes to the Seven Seas. The film shows how the river can overflow its banks during a storm (mark 06:06) damaging the surrounding land and endangering life as we see the massive destruction of the delta that resulted from the 1927 flood (mark 07:37).
Starting at mark 08:40, the film explores the Army Corps of Engineers' methods of maintaining it as a safe navigational channel and also details how the Corps has built countless levees, dams, floodways and other protective barriers in order to prevent a reoccurrence of the flood. We learn how engineers in the 1930s straightened portions of the river (mark 14:46) between Memphis and Baton Rouge to allow a straighter flow of water and alleviate flooding, and as the film continues we see additional construction efforts take place. By mark 25:00, the narrator explains how such efforts have resulted in a valley that is better protected from the rushing waters.
We encourage viewers to add comments and, especially, to provide additional information about our videos by adding a comment! See something interesting? Tell people what it is and what they can see by writing something for example: 01:00:12:00 -- President Roosevelt is seen meeting with Winston Churchill at the Quebec Conference.

Ancient PYRAMID city - GREATER than in EGYPT - In UNITED STATES
The Ancient Pyramid City of Cahokia, named by modern people in America, lies in the state of Illinois. The city stands today along the Mississippi River. But this city is not Cahokia. It is a real city that existed in America just before the Europeans got here. Funny, we just never cared.
The city is actually Manti. The chief city of the land of Manti. It was situated near the headwaters of the Sidon, which is modern day Missouri, where it intersects with the Mississippi River. It was the most southerly city of importance in that region. Being an outlying settlement of the Nephites, though strongly fortified, it suffered greatly by the invasions of the Lamanites. In the great war, inaugurated by Amalickiah, it was captured by the Lamanites (some time before B. C. 66), and by them converted into an important base for their operations against the Nephites, both east and west.* In B. C. 63, Gid and Teomner, two Nephite generals, recaptured it by stratagem; and Helaman took his Ammonite and other troops there and made it his headquarters. It was not again captured by the Lamanites during that long and disastrous war. In later Lamanite invasions it undoubtedly fell, more than once, into their hands, as it was in the direct line of the course they generally took when entering the Nephite territory.

New Orleans, Louisiana - Mississippi River Waterfront (2020)
The French Quarter, also known as the Vieux Carré, is the oldest neighborhood in the city of New Orleans. After New Orleans (La Nouvelle-Orléans in French) was founded in 1718 by Jean-Baptiste Le Moyne de Bienville, the city developed around the Vieux Carré (Old Square in English), a central square. The district is more commonly called the French Quarter today, or simply The Quarter, related to changes in the city with American immigration after the Louisiana Purchase. Most of the extant historic buildings were constructed either in the late 18th century, during the city's period of Spanish rule, or were built during the first half of the 19th century, after U.S. annexation and statehood.
The district as a whole has been designated as a National Historic Landmark, with numerous contributing buildings that are separately deemed significant. It is a prime tourist destination in the city, as well as attracting local residents. Because of its distance from areas where the levee was breached during Hurricane Katrina in 2005 as well as the strength and height of the nearest Mississippi River Levees in contrast to other levees along the canals and lakefront, it suffered relatively light damage from floodwater as compared to other areas of the city and the greater region.
New Orleans is a consolidated city-parish located along the Mississippi River in the southeastern region of the U.S. state of Louisiana. With an estimated population of 391,006 in 2018, it is the most populous city in Louisiana. Serving as a major port, New Orleans is considered an economic and commercial hub for the broader Gulf Coast region of the United States.
New Orleans is world-renowned for its distinct music, Creole cuisine, unique dialect, and its annual celebrations and festivals, most notably Mardi Gras. The historic heart of the city is the French Quarter, known for its French and Spanish Creole architecture and vibrant nightlife along Bourbon Street. The city has been described as the most unique in the United States, owing in large part to its cross-cultural and multilingual heritage. Founded in 1718 by French colonists, New Orleans was once the territorial capital of French Louisiana before being traded to the United States in the Louisiana Purchase of 1803. New Orleans in 1840 was the third-most populous city in the United States, and it was the largest city in the American South from the Antebellum era until after World War II. The city's location and flat elevation have historically made it very vulnerable to flooding. State and federal authorities have installed a complex system of levees and drainage pumps in an effort to protect the city.
New Orleans was severely affected by Hurricane Katrina on August 29, 2005, which resulted in flooding more than 80% of the city, thousands of deaths, and so much displacement because of damaged communities and lost housing as to cause a population decline of over 50%. Since Katrina, major redevelopment efforts have led to a rebound in the city's population. Concerns about gentrification, new residents buying property in formerly closely knit communities, and displacement of longtime residents have been expressed.
