42 Confluence of Two Rivers in Saint Paul, Minnesota

The Mississippi River flows between the Twin Cities. In the background on the left is downtown Minneapolis. On the right is Saint Paul. This photo was taken at Fort Snelling State Park looking west. Just east of this site is the confluence of the Mississippi and Minnesota Rivers. The Mdewakanton Dakota tribe called this spot Bdote Minisota. The same Native Americans gave the state its name. Minisota means “clear blue water.”
