NHD Photo of the Month

Each month the NHD web site will highlight a photo of a real-world hydrography feature that can be found in the NHD. Send your favorite photograph of a hydrography feature to the USGS and each month one will be selected for the web site. Take pictures of hydrography while hiking, boating, or on vacation. This is open to anyone wishing to participate. Entries should portray an existing NHD feature. Limit one photo per month per participant. Send digital photographs to the following email address: nhd@usgs.gov.


This month's photo, by Jen Crea, is of Lake Itasca, the headwater lake of the Mississippi River. The river outlet, with the pole announcing the Headwaters of the Mighty Mississippi, is just off to the right (reachcode 07010101008396 Artificial Path).
