The Laramie Rages, Again

Posted in Nature, Photography, The Ranch by leahyetter on April 14, 2011

A lot of rain last autumn and excess snow runoff has forced the folks at the reservoir to release more water into the Laramie River. They released 2,750 cubic feet almost all at once last June and the river was treacherous. But this time they decided to start earlier and release less at a time.

But usually, the Laramie is a small stream. Now, again, it is a raging river and is creeping up on the banks surrounding pine trees and sage brush.

It is also creating various channels throughout the meadows. This low lying grassland is always quite dry but now it is surrounded by lovely a winding stream.

    it´s always amazing to see how things change. Rivers for example. One could think that they don´t change at all but I´ve seen them dry and I´ve seen them flooding.
    Beautiful pictures!
