CONTINENTAL DIVIDE RIDE

What is the Great Divide?

 

The Continental Divide, or the Great Divide, is a defining geographical feature in North America, primarily following the crest of the Rocky Mountains. Stretching from Alaska to South America, it serves as a watershed boundary, determining the direction in which rivers flow and whether their waters eventually reach the Pacific, Atlantic, or Arctic Oceans.

Beginning in Alaska's Brooks Range, the divide moves southeast, passing through the U.S. states of Montana, Idaho, Wyoming, Colorado, and New Mexico. Its elevation and characteristics vary, impacting the flow of rivers. To the west, rivers like the Columbia and Colorado flow towards the Pacific, while those to the east, such as the Mississippi and Missouri, flow towards the Atlantic or Gulf of Mexico.

Apart from its hydrological significance, the Continental Divide has historical and cultural importance. Native Americans recognized it as a natural boundary, and it guided the movements of early explorers and settlers. Today, it attracts outdoor enthusiasts seeking to traverse its rugged path, showcasing the interconnectedness of geography and its enduring impact on the continent's natural dynamics. As a natural boundary, the Continental Divide stands as a symbol of North America's diverse landscapes and historical significance.
