A River flows through it
Friends, a river view in the badlands at the point where Knutson Creek enters the Little Missouri River. This spring the water was quiet and very peaceful, unlike last spring when a hundred year flood had turned this scene into a raging torrent. This river is about 560 miles long with headwaters in Wyoming, moving north into South Dakota badlands, north into the North Dakota badlands and north to empty into the Big Missouri River. My Grandfather tells of escaping a massive flood with his wife and young son on the back of a single horse. In their marriage book, my Grandmother had written “this was damaged in the flood of 1910” . The power of water. til Tomorrow MJ
