Big Sky Over Mission Creek

My boat is parked in my driveway, dwarfing our little red Prius. There are many projects waiting for me but today it is rainy and cold. So I am spending time looking for photos of Lake Oahe and the Missouri River.

This photo (taken with film in another century) looks north over the mouth of mission creek. The peninsula visible in the middle is called Mouse Island and I am guessing that the strip of land connecting the island will be under water this summer due to the fact that the reservoir is almost full. The boat is this photo is named Ariel and I sailed her for over 20 years.

For a sense of the geography of this place, you really need to see this spot on my Panoramio web site.
