Sepia Scenes - The start of something big
Sepia Scenes takes me back a few decades, to a place of a modest beginning, that being the birthplace of the mighty Mississippi River. This is Lake Itasca state park in north-central Minnesota.
The powerful currents move these waters from here to the Gulf of Mexico in Louisiana. Over 2300 miles/3700 kM long, the beginnings are humble, and crossing the mighty waterway by foot can only happen at the source. I was on my feet in those days and also crossed.
I edited this in sepia, as it was taken on a day of heat, humidity and glare. The edit adds an interesting tone to the subjects crossing the river one rock at a time. See sepia in many forms at Mary's fun monochrome meme!
