When the Platte River finds it's way to Nebraska plains, it winds its way along the shallow landscape. The River is wide but only inches deep. Having loose sand and no clear banks it changes it's path often. When the river flooded in Colorado this September, it took several weeks for the water to find it's way west. As it does every couple of years, the flooding is vast. It's not dangerous, it simply makes it's way out of the shallow banks and fills the wetlands for miles. It is a beautiful sight this time of year.
