Apple River (Illinois)


Apple River (Illinois)

The Apple River is a tributary of the Mississippi River, about 40 mi (65 km) long, in southwestern Wisconsin and northwestern Illinois in the United States. It rises in Lafayette County, Wisconsin, and flows for most of its length in Illinois, through Jo Daviess and Carroll Counties. Along its course it passes through Apple River Canyon State Park and the town of Hanover. It flows into the Mississippi River about 7 mi (11 km) northwest of Savanna.

In Jo Daviess County, it collects two short tributaries known as the West Fork Apple River and South Fork Apple River.

Geology

The river is part of the Driftless Area of Illinois, a region that was bypassed by the last ice age; "the glacial sweep which ironed out hills and filled valleys in other parts of the state left this area unscratched. [ [http://dnr.state.il.us/lands/landmgt/Parks/R1/APPLE.HTM Illinois Department of Natural Resources] , Retrieved July 12, 2007] The Apple River had its original course reversed, it now flowing south to the Mississippi. [ [http://dnr.state.il.us/orep/c2000/assessments/driftweb/ataglance.htm Illinois DNR on Driftless Area] , Retrieved July 12, 2007] The result is a deep canyon, part of which is preserved in Apple River Canyon State Park.
