Whoa, seriously damp... my very first memory is of walking across a bridge in Valley City. Wonder if it was the one pictured? er, invisible under water...

Love the shots of the geese... at least someone gets to enjoy all this water!

Actually, we have 11 bridges. Do you remember what it looked like? Modern plain ugly concrete, old concrete by a park, lacey white metal, erector set looking metal, or a big arched concrete one?

I sure can't figure out how to add photos or I'd put up pics of some of the bridges.

Concrete, fairly flat, and I seem to recall at least a couple light poles along the bridge as well. Must be close to a residential neighbourhood because I was maybe 3 years old and we couldn't have walked very far! (And my mom was singing "Que Sera, Sera"!!) This would have been about 1958.

I'm not sure how you add photos either... I always just throw the pic onto my FTP site and link to it there! [pokes interface] Aha... See the button that says "Manage Attachments" ?? Click that, then click Browse to navigate to wherever it lives on your computer -- you might have to doubleclick the filename -- then click Upload, and it should magically happen. I haven't actually tried it myself.

I was not aware of the ND bashing by National Geographic until I stumbled across this forum a few days ago. The scenes depicted in the link above are no different than things I saw when I was a kid on the Missouri in Washburn and all around the state. And that was 50+ years ago. No matter where you go, there's always the old waiting to be replaced by the new. Too bad NG tried to trash a great state for the sake of selling a magazine. I vow to return someday, while I still have time. Thanks to all for the pics. They really get the memory fired up.

I don't know if I'd call it bashing. Those photos (which they've now consigned to Flash Hell, so I can't look again) were sad, but beautiful in the way of farm country... not so much dead as dormant, waiting for a new generation of pioneers. But where do we get those pioneers?

Over on the MT forum and elsewhere there's been a long discussion on the possibility of secession. If it happens, I expect the new nation would be comprised of a chunk of the prairie-farming states (including ND) and at that point restarting those abandoned farms would become viable (and probably necessary), as we'd have to return to that pioneer way of thinking and doing to make the new nation survive.
