The Mississippi River

This post isn’t about Palmer Lake, but about the Mississippi River.

A interesting fact about Shingle Creek, is that it starts outs as Eagle Lake then goes into Eagle creek then the creek splits in to two, that are called Bass Creek and Shingle Creek. Then Shingle Creek goes through Palmer Lake and flows into the Mississippi River.

On Sunday, I went to the Mississippi River Regional Trail to bike around and I got some pictures of the river.

The Mississippi River is the second longest river in North America, starting at Lake Itasca Minnesota flowing 2,350 miles until it reaches the Golf of Mexico. The River right now is so low, that you can walk some of it. There is also a public boat access, disc golf area and a fishing dock. It is so amazing how we have all this nature around us.

If anyone has any questions, please feel free to type it in the comments.

  1. The Mississippi River Trail is one of my favorite biking trails. Quiet, serene, and natural beauty abounds. A great place to get away from it all, yet right in the heart of the city.

    Thank you for sharing your amazing photos and fun facts!
