Here we have the Dorothy Ann/Pathfinder tug and barge vessel cruising right through Cleveland, Ohio on the Cuyahoga River. It’s a really cool view of the ride because you see the long ship navigate the narrow channels next to the city. I mean, at some point the width of the river is no wider than the width of the ship.
Kayaking the entire 2,552-mile length of the Mississippi River has been a challenge. It would be for anyone, but for novice paddlers like me and the now heavily-bearded boyfriend, it amounted to the biggest challenge we’ve ever faced. Here’s why.

New York's ice-choked East River—seen from Pier 1 Playground in Brooklyn—is evidence of the extraordinary cold temperatures gripping much of the central and eastern United States this week. Video of the scene shows the frigid water moving at a surreal and unexpected speed.
Where we're going, we don't need roads... we need a zipline, thought these intrepid Russians. Because, in order to cross a violent river without a bridge nearby, crazy Russians thought it would be smart to strap their car to a zipline and let it fly by to the other side. I guess.
Amazon is busy trying to gobble up all kinds of top-level domains—.book, .read, you name it—but it also has its eye on .amazon, too. Turns out that the Brazilian and Peruvian governments have something to say about that though, and would rather snag it for the famous river.
The ordered lines of Jerome, Idaho (population: 10,000) start to disintegrate as you approach those parts of town that teeter on the edge of the Snake river canyon. Here the homes are "unregulated and unzoned", says photographer Michael Light, who took this shot from his own light aircraft.
Planetary scientists at the European Space Agency have released 3D images of the "striking upper part of the Reull Vallis region of Mars," which reveal a 932-mile-long (1500 kilometer) river running from the Promethei Terra Highlands to the vast Hellas basin.
