#457 Blackwater

I grew up on the banks of the Blackwater River in Missouri.

The Blackwater was not black but muddy brown and the source of the river's name is lost to history.

Having just spent time on Brazil's black river, the Rio Negro, I was pleased to see a rare sight on the tourist map, a river that's not colored swimming pool blue, but black.

Yours in map accuracy,
