Minnesota Topography and Tourist Destinations

The name Minnesota is derived from a Dakota Indian word meaning "sky-colored water".  Minnesota's terrain varies from prairies in the south to forests in the north.  Lake Itasca is the source of the Mississippi River; to its northeast lie the Misquah Hills as well as the Mesabi and Vermillion Ranges, which are noted for their iron ore deposits.  The many lakes in northern Minnesota feed the Mississippi, Minnesota, and Saint Croix Rivers.  Popular tourist destinations in the Land of 10,000 Lakes include Voyageurs National Park and Grand Portage National Monument.  For Minnesota travel and tourism information, visit the official Minnesota tourism site and Minnesota Atlas
