Sunday Trees – 422

Sunday Trees is hosted by Becca Givens and is all about trees.

Here is my entry: This is the Mississippi River at an easy flood stage. Those clump of trees in the water is an island.

I say easy because when the Mississippi floods thousands of people and many riverside towns and cities become evolved.

I’ve spent most of my life living near the Mississippi River. I’ve driven over a bridge at the southern end, where it is more than a mile wide, during a colossal flood. I’ve walked across a bridge near its beginning where it is only a few feet wide and a few inches deep. 

I’ve canoed it, walked and biked along side as it flowed south.

It takes no notice of me, but I am well aware of its existence.
