Last summer there was epic flooding up and down the Missouri River. It was a nightmare and extremely sad especially for those who lost homes.
Luckily the flood waters have (mostly) receded. Sadly many homes were beyond saving and portions of the landscape forever changed. Along the river near Niobrara, NE where we fished was evidence of the flood. Sand from the river covered the banks and surrounding land.
The flood line was easily visible on the many dead trees now lining the river banks.
Lots of driftwood and tree roots laying around.
Attempts at controlling the banks and washed away roads add a rustic touch to the otherwise natural landscape.
