Quinta Scott's Mississippi River Photographs

The Source--Lake Itasca State Park, Minnesota

“The outlet of Itasca Lake, is perhaps ten to twelve feet broad, with an apparent depth of twelve to eighteen inches. The discharge of water appears to be copious, compared to its inlet. Springs may, however, produce accessions which are not visible, and this is probable both from the geological character of the country, and the transparency and coolness of the water.” --Henry Rowe Schoolcraft, 1832.
