Take our St. Johns River “aerial” quiz

So, you think you know the St. Johns River? At 310 miles in length, the St. Johns River assumes three different personalities as it flows from south to north: It begins as a marsh, morphs into a defined river with discernable riverbanks and finally becomes an estuary as it mixes with the saltwater of the Atlantic Ocean in Mayport.

We’re mixing things up a bit as we challenge you to eight bird’s eye views of the mighty St. Johns River. Can you name them? (Hint: If the going gets too tough, Google Earth can help.)
