Small, blocky shapes of towns, fields, and pastures surround the graceful swirls and whorls of the Mississippi River shown in this false-color satellite image. Countless oxbow lakes and cutoffs accompany the meandering river south of Memphis, Tennessee, on the border between Arkansas and Mississippi. The "Mighty Mississippi" is the largest river system in North America. Image courtesy of USGS.
