MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — There is a quiet place in northern Minnesota where a mighty river is so small — you can even step across it.

Itasca State Park is home to the headwaters of the Mississippi River.

Photojournalist Tom Aviles takes us to this timeless place and the heart of one of America’s largest rivers. Watch the video above.

Itasca is Minnesota’s oldest state park.

If you’d like to bring your family there, you’ll find a visitors guide here.
