While following the Lewis and Clark Expedition route, we stopped again at Giant Springs. It is attached to a short trail along the Missouri River. This is a cool place with green waters, cascades, and the world's shortest river (maybe). Story: Two rivers claim to be the shortest in the world: the Roe and, on the Oregon coast, the D. The D was recognized by Guiness as the short one, but the Roe backers measured it and claimed the prize. In response, the D advocates measured their river at high tide and reclaimed the record. Guiness people however threw up their hands in disgust and stoutly refused to assign the term "shortest river" to either the Roe or the D. Photographers: this is a place for the wide angle as well as trying to use low shutter speeds to blur water.
