Gimme Shelter on the Mississippi


The Mississippi is the longest river in the USA.  Its mouth is near New Orleans, Louisiana, and its highest navigable point is  at St. Anthony Falls in Minnesota.  In the late 1800's, Minneapolis sprang up as a major city by harnessing the Mississippi's flow over the falls to create the world's largest flour milling center.  MavicTraveler used a DJI Mavic Pro drone to create an aerial view of this critical point on the Mississippi, which since the 1950's has been navigable for smaller watercraft via a series of locks.
