Early on the 14th of March the ice broke on the Yellowstone. When that happens there is sure to be a few things that also occur, flooding and ice jams. After picking Savanna up from track practice the we went to the river to get a few photos (ya know like 50).
Where does the river stop and the shore begin?
Ice is pretty interesting up close.
This is the wintering grounds for a herd of cattle, but the river overtook it! No worries, the farmer moved the cattle a few days beforehand in anticipation of the ice breaking up.
The next morning, I headed to the school to volunteer and saw that the ice was jamming. I just had to stop on my way home and get some more pictures.
This tree almost looks as if it belongs rooted among the ice.
I took this one from the truck window as we crossed over the freeway bridge.
A little walk to the baseball field proved another place to capture the flooding.
Not sure I want to sit here! 🙂
Chunks of ice float in the practice football field.
Four days after the ice broke, the water recedes and the large slabs of ice are stranded in the fields.
