Lewis and Clark Monument Park overlook
Here we are again (a previous post showed some of the flooded areas), at the top of the bluff overlooking the Missouri River. It's about 50°F (10°C), the breeze is light, skies clear. We are looking toward the southwest. The city of Omaha is the cluster of buildings behind the tree on the right. Below we see a blue lake. It is much too big for the original Big Lake in the park below---much of what we see is remnant floodwater trapped there. The Missouri River returned to below flood stage towards the end of September. That meant, however, a huge cleanup for those along the banks, sadness for farmers who began to assess damage to farmland and try to eek out what little crop is left, if any. Leaf color is diminishing now as trees lose leaves. The oaks, last to change color in the Fall, are now adding their their darker reds, yellows and russet.
Thank you for visiting! Your comments and suggestions for improvement are very much appreciated.
