The water started hundreds of miles away. A tiny spring bubbled clear water to the surface. Over time, it became a stream, and gathered water from other streams on its journey.
At first, there were no names. The water just flowed, and eventually became a wide and mighty river. There was no end of fish and wildlife. The river fed the land, and traveled ever southward to spill into a mighty ocean.
People came. Great cities grew. Industry, electricity, agriculture: all relied upon the great river that sprang from a tiny spring way up north.
