Skulking Across the Plains

Missouri River

Like the twisted form of a dragon skulking across the plains, the mighty Missouri River bulges and contorts as it clutches the landscape north of Pierre, South Dakota. The question to ponder is whether the river is defined by the terrain through which it flows, or is the terrain defined by the flow of the river? Regardless, the twisted form presents us with the living embodiment of the spirit of water on earth…life-giving…defining…something to be revered.
