This is the geographic spot where the continent’s two great rivers come together with such raw energy that we should all pause to witness the forces of Mother Nature exhibited here.
It’s also a great place to watch and photograph birds – millions travel the migratory route of the Mississippi River and love hanging out in the marshes and wetlands here.
And while you’ve got your camera out, stay put for the sunset.
There aren’t a lot of services at this park and if you wonder why, take a look at the flood pole to show the depth of these rivers at this spot during the Great Flood of 1993.
Located in St. Charles County on the north side of the St. Louis metro, follow Highway 67/Lindbergh Avenue north across the Missouri River. Follow the signs, but if you cross the Mississippi, you’ve gone too far.
