Red River of the North

The Red River of the North rises at the confluence of Otter Tail and the Bois de Sioux Rivers in southeastern North Dakota in The Red River of the North rises at the confluence of Otter Tail and the Bois de Sioux Rivers in southeastern North Dakota in [38077].

Traveling through the heart of the Red River Valley, one of the nation's most fertile agricultural regions, the river forms the most of the boundary between North Dakota and Minnesota and passes bountiful farmland checkered with bottomland forest and tall grass prairies on its slow trip north.

With only a 230-foot drop over its nearly 400-mile length (about 200 statue miles), the river's relatively shallow channel can cause frequent flooding problems during the spring thaw. Typically, ice on the south, or upstream end, of the river melt first and often back up when encountering the still-frozen waters to the north.

Major cities along the river include [fargo] and [grandfor] as well as smaller [drayton] and [pembina]. CODE left
