It is the first time I hear something about this geographical oddity!
And I find it pretty awesome!
The Pacific creek starting in the Teton Wilderness of Bridger-Teton National Forest, Wyoming parts the USA in two at an unusual hydrologic site called the Parting of the Waters.
And amazingly, this small water line separates the USA in two and links the Atlantic with the Pacific oceans.
Yes! No matter how hard you try not to, you will have to cross this creek to go from North to South or vice versa.
The place where this creek divides into two similar flows is called the Parting of the Waters.
At this point, the creek flows to the East 3,488 miles (5,613 km) to the Atlantic Ocean via Atlantic Creek and the Yellowstone, Missouri and Mississippi Rivers and to the West 1,353 miles (2,177 km) to the Pacific Ocean via Pacific Creek and the Snake and Columbia Rivers.
Hope you learned something! I did by the way!
