Low Water Crossing… and a Nap

More catching up today on older images from back in September…..

Down in the Flint Hills area of Kansas the stream bottoms are gravel, and on roads where there isn’t much traffic, no bridges were ever built – people just drive on down into the stream through the water, and up the bank on the other side.

I LOVE doing this whenever we are down in that area. It seems dangerous (but it’s not really), and like we’re a covered wagon fording rivers on our way west to the promised land of Oregon.

Have I mentioned I have an overactive imagination?

The last couple years though have been disappointing due to the ongoing drought. Little or no water is running, so the low water crossings are dry, like this one at the Tallgrass Prairie Preserve.

This crossing is a little more high-tech in that they put in a culvert and poured some concrete over it.

Time for a little nap.
