Awesome River Maps
Harold Fisk did a geologic study of the lower Mississippi River in 1944 and made some really cool maps. I think I like maps more than most but I imagine anyone would enjoy these. It's sweet when technical drawings look like art. The different colors represent paths the river took in the past. Nowadays the Army Corps of Engineers do their best to keep it from changing. I made the title image with one of Mr. Fisk's maps.
