Day 38: Birdfoot


"The end of the Mississippi River Delta - the Birdfoot - is a national landscape of disintegration, a fractal labyrinth of dendritic channels, a blend of water and earth, bisected and rerouted by linear, engineered forms of pipeline canals and levees. The people who live and work here, beyond the reach of roads, do so tenuously, in a delicate, disappearing place that is battered by hurricanes, and eroding into the sea." - Where America's River Dissolves Into the Sea
