The Panama Canal is not the only water way to connect the Atlantic Ocean to the Pacific Ocean.

A creek located in Yellowstone National Park flows in two natural directions. One direction ultimately leads to the Gulf of Mexico and the other direction flows to the Pacific Ocean. The location where the creek splits is called "Parting of the Waters". The east direction flows 3,488 miles to the Gulf of Mexico through the Missouri River and the Mississippi River. The west direction flows 1,353 miles to the Pacific Ocean through the Snake River and then the Columbia River.

This is not the only water way to connect the two oceans. Isa Lake, which is located close to the "Parting of the Waters", has two mouths. The two mouths allows the water from the lake to flow to the Atlantic and Pacific Oceans.

Isa Lake, WY
