Maybe so. I guess crossing it farther south becomes quite daunting. I lived in a suburb of St Paul for awhile so I know what the river looks like there. It makes sense that more crossings would be near the headwaters.

I live in the twin cities. The river here is a couple hundred yards across, so bridges are easy. I’ve crossed the river in Memphis and I swear it’s close to a half mile wide.

Yeah I lived in the twin cities and also in St Louis. But I have visited New Orleans and man is it a whole different river down at the delta.
