RIVERS COME FROM A TINY STREAM

Power Of Numbers

As we think to ourselves that small quantities don’t matter. I beg to differ, the opinion of most. Watching Mother Nature working her magic to endure supplements to her peers I have become witness to the power of numbers. One tree is shade. A thousand trees a forest. How powerful can a tiny stream become? I’m about to take you on that journey of one well known river that where I come from can be stepped across.

Allegheny River's Route

Winding aimlessly the tiny narrow stream made way through the rugged mountain range of the Allegheny. It started out as a drizzle that erupted from a cranny found in a rural area known as Cobb Hill in Potter County, Pennsylvania. Miles and miles of twist and turns are visible, as the tiny stream grew wide prowling its way west and then north from one state to another and south again. From northern Potter County, Pennsylvania upward into the southern tier of Cattaraugus County, New York and back again, the powerful waters are dammed for recreational as well as power supplements for its residents. The mighty Allegheny River is the source of the great Kinzua Dam and Allegheny Reservoir which was built in 1965 as flood control protection for Warren, Pennsylvania. It served this purpose well in 1972 and saved its tenants from overwhelming destruction.

Look How Big It Got

The Allegheny River travels 198 miles south to Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania where it joins the Monongahela River and empties its waters into the Ohio River which at some points are still referred to as the Allegheny. The Ohio travels at a southwestern direction with its mouth at the Mississippi.

      Thank you. Sadly this river is not as beautiful as it once was due to gas drillers and the pollution accompanying it. But it's still a lovely view.
