Mississippi River Road Trip

In 2012, we took a little drive from the Headwaters of the Mississippi River at Lake Itasca, Minnesota all the way down to New Orleans, Louisiana. It's quite a trip, and there's a lot to see. I actually made a little site 'specially for it: http://mattnortham.com/mississippi/ which goes into a bit more detail about the things we did. This here though, is a small selection of the photos. Each one is tagged with the location on Flickr, so click through if you want a bit more information.
