Who is familiar with Mesabi Range, iron ore mine?
Looks like its NNW of Duluth.
(Which I'd also like to see.)
Is there a vantage point to see the Mesabi Range?
Also, is there a sign at Lake Itasca saying, Beginning of the Mississippi River?

The Mighty Mississippi, from Lk Itasca to the gulf is 2350 only miles. The Missouri River is one of the major flows of the Mississippi River and is 2341 miles itself when it MEETS the Mississippi.

"It flows 2,341 miles from its headwaters at the confluence of the Gallatin, Madison, and Jefferson Rivers in the Rocky Mountains at Three Forks, Montana, to its confluence with the Mississippi River at St. Louis, Missouri."

Now, the Columbia River starts in BC Canada and flows down and thru Washington state then makes the border between Washington and Oregon State. It is wider than the Mississippi in many places.
