This gorgeous map by Nelson Minar shows every single river in the United States. Look how many veins America has!

The vector data Minar used to make the visualization is on GitHub if you'd like to make your own. In case you forgot, geography can be beautiful. Also, so much for Nevada being a desert. [GitHub via Kottke via Digg]
