Two Big Rivers

Millies Fountain 2010-10-30 3

Another view of The Meeting Of The Waters fountain and statues. The male figure in the center that we saw yesterday represents the Mississippi. The female on the right is the Missouri. I've never thought about the two rivers having gender. The Mississippi is the bigger of the two at the confluence so you can read whatever you want into this.

The confluences itself is in the northern part of the metro area but it's a bit hard to get to. The view can be pretty cool depending on the weather and water level. The park at the meeting point gets flooded every year. Maybe I should head back up there for a shoot.

I was absent yesterday Prof. Crowe. I have my excuse in hand. I"ve had a look at both. Just beautiful. You got that rainbow too. :)

I'm trying not to read anything into it! What a lovely blue sky too. Raining pots and buckets here.

... fat butt! Funny comment about the 'umbrella' story on the other post. I'm still smiling.
