The Snake River starts in Wyoming winds its way through Idaho ,Oregon & before dumping into the Columbia River. in Washington .That would be one big state.
The Snake River is a major tributary of the Columbia River in the U.S. states of Wyoming, Idaho, Oregon, and Washington. The river's length is 1,040 miles its watershed drains 108,000 square miles and the average discharge at its mouth is 56,900 cubic feet per second The river flows from its source in Yellowstone National Park through a series of mountain ranges, canyons, and plains.
What about the Missouri River??
The headwaters of the Missouri are in the Rocky Mountains of southwestern Montana, near the small town of Three Forks, rising in the Jefferson, Madison, and Gallatin rivers. It flows east across the plains of Montana into North Dakota, then turns southeast, flowing into South Dakota, and along the north and eastern edge of Nebraska, forming part of its border with South Dakota and all of its border with Iowa, flowing past Sioux City and Omaha. It forms the entire boundary between Nebraska and Missouri, and part of the boundary between Missouri and Kansas. At Kansas City, it turns generally eastward, flowing across Missouri where it joins the Mississippi just north of St. Louis.
Now that would be one HUGE State!!!
