The man, Jesse, wanted to try walking across the Mississipi River! He found a place where there were stones and decided to give it a try. It's a cool, cloudy, fall day. He must have a good sense of balance to walk on the rocks with water moving around them between them and the rocks could be slippery, too. He might have to jump between some of the rocks because they're farther apart. When he gets to the other side, he'll have to walk back to where he started so he should rest and have something to eat. Jerome likes to try new things!
