Re: “The Monongahela River flows from south to north. How many other rivers do?

-The Saint John's River's crystal springs headwaters originate northwest of Melborne Florida, west of the Atlantic Ocean, in south central Florida. From there the St John's River flows due north around the outskirts of Orlando and continues north to Jacksonville, Florida. South of Uptown Jax the St Johns is over 4 miles wide. As it enters Jacksonville city the river changes direction to due east for about 15 miles, where it empties into the Atlantic Ocean at Mayport, Florida.

-Unlike north-flowing dinky rivers in West Virginia (except for the majestic New River, one of the oldest in the world) the St John's River is a massive and joyous body of North Flowing water. Millions of Florida lovers enjoy using the St Johns during all seasons of the year (except maybe when there's a bad storm during Hurricane Season!)

-The St John's is the FIRST major river discovered in America by European explorers (Spaniards; anyone heard of Prince de Leon and St. Augustine, Florida?).

-Anyway, the St John's River is certainly the most historic and likely most enjoyed north-flowing river in America.
