Hernando de Soto Lake lies at the extreme upstream edge of the Mississippi River source basin at Itasca State Park in Minnesota. This lake and the various other lakes, ponds, swamps, streams and springs flow or seep in the direction of Lake Itasca which, in turn, funnels the water into the Mississippi River.

This movie was taken on March 30, 2010 from the southeast corner of Hernando de Soto Lake. For the first 19 seconds, we are panning from the southwest to the north. Then we pan from the north to the southeast over a considerably flooded area that is normally not connected to the lake. In drier times, one can walk from this spot on a path to the high ground to the north.

Music is from Vivaldi's "The Four Seasons" - the Spring Concerto.

I have a little more about the sources of the Mississippi River at http://www.jlindquist.com/mapsupp6a.html - including some still photos of Hernando de Soto lake and a link to another video .
