After walking across the narrow walkway shown above, the two RV Gypsies crossed over a small bridge and took photos looking towards the spring and waterfall.

history bookThen the water flows under the bridge and becomes one of the shortest rivers in the country at 201 feet (the Roe River), flowing into the longest river (The Missouri River), at 2, 540 miles long - 200 miles longer than the Mississippi River.

Note: Yet, according to signs in Oregon, The D River in Lincoln City, Oregon was once nameless and known as the shortest river in the world in the Guinness Book of Worlds Records (at 440) feet. Starting in 2006, the Guinness Book of World Records no longer lists a category for the shortest river.

Below: Notice the difference in the color of the water in the Missouri River. The dark blue waters near the shoreline is the natural spring water and it maintains its purity for about one full mile before it blends into the Missouri River.
