Quinta Scott's Mississippi River Photographs

The Headwaters-Minnesota

“Soon the river escapes from the narrow valley in which it has been confined since the first rapids. It enters a large valley, opening to our view in the distance the wooded hills that had just shifted away from us on either side of the river. The valley bottom is a flat, marshy prairie, broken up by clusters of shrubbery. The current is slower, and there is much water, spreading over twenty to thirty feet in breadth. The river is in a wandering mood. It meanders and sometimes it even doubles back.” --Joseph N. Nicollet, 1836
