Please Note Images are Below Introduction

The Mississippi begins as a small stream just 180 miles north of Minneapolis, Minn.  At its narrowest point, it can be walked across on a simple foot bridge and is no more than 18 inches deep.  By the time, it reaches the Gulf of Mexico, 35 miles South of New Orleans, it  is over two miles wide in and has holes deeper than 300 to 400 feet.  It has crossed though the heart of our country, and has many untold stories resting safely between its banks. 

As part of the mission of Cajun Images, I intend to photograph the river's journey from beginning to end.  It will probably take me years to accomplish this task, but below is my beginning.  I will try to add more images and facts as my time and travels allow.
