The Great Falls of the Missouri
June 23, 2003

Here's what's left of the falls after they've been dammed

An interesting tree-removing machine seen at our campground.  Four large spades are pressed into the ground forming a bucket that contains the tree.  Then the tree is lifted and tilted forward for transport.  A ten-minute job to remove a fair-sized tree.
