Another landscape. I actually finished this one two years ago but have only now gotten around to scanning it.
"Prairie Waters" depicts the Moreau River as it carves a winding path through the South Dakota prairie. Because of the openness of the landscape, a little water can cause a lot of erosion on the prairie, exposing layers of sediment that have laid hidden for millions of years and making this area a palaentologist's heaven. During one of my last trips to the reservation the area was experincing a severe drought. The river was almost dry so I took the opportuny to walk down the river bed and check the cliffs for dinosaur fossils. Not being a palaentologist, however, I didn't know what to look for and thus came up empty handed.
