I've written here and here about the place where the Missouri and Mississippi Rivers join, the Confluence, but I had never been able to get there until tonight. Edward "Ted" and Pat Jones-Confluence Point State Park has been closed for a few years following extensive flood damage, but, at last, they opened it this summer. (In the top picture, the Missouri is on the left, the Mississippi on the right.)

So I was able to follow a long, winding, gravel road through the corn fields to reach to actual tip of the division between these mighty rivers. Very peaceful it was too, the meeting of two very like-minded bodies of water!A nice way to get out of the house and get some fresh air and evening sun. Very restorative.
