Our place on the river is below the Red Rock Dam. The water stays open all winter. We have lots of water birds to enjoy during the winter months. This piece of ice was breaking up. We used to have ice jams at this narrow place in the river before the dam of 1968.
Nana is so proud of her deer leg. She carried it 3 miles to our home. Then she buried it as well as she could for a later treat
English River flows into the Des Moines River near my property. The English is flooding big time. 2008 was a flood that destroyed my little Hay farm. I replanted. I hope we do not lose again this year. Lots of folks have their homes at stake. I just have a hayfield.
