Iowa Road Trip: Missouri - Mississippi Divide
A few weeks back, I was driving in west-central Iowa along Highway 44, when I noticed a sign on the road that said "Missouri - Mississippi Divide." I had never heard of this before, so I looked it up when I got back home. Turns out, it's the dividing line where every river on the west side flows to the Missouri River, and every river on the east side flows to the Mississippi River.
I learned a little bit about the geography of my state just by reading a highway sign!
It was such a beautiful, hilly area, I stopped to take a few pictures before heading on my way.
Have you ever heard of the Missouri - Mississippi Divide?
