We live in one of the most unique physiographic regions of Eastern South Dakota. It's called the Coteau des Prairies and it measures 100 miles wide by 200 miles long. It's composed of glacial sediment from numerous glaciations ... Hey, I love that word.
This spot is a well kept secret, I hope. I am going to take my Geologist Guy there for a sunset picnic. It's an optical illusion of sorts ... notice how the clouds are level with the trees. That's because I am standing on a nice big hill, courtesy of the Coteau des Prairies. It's cool to realize today, that what's going on below the ground here is just as amazing as what's going on above it. I get a real kick out of my newly found interest in the Earth Sciences. And having an incredibly intelligent husband doesn't hurt. Thanks, Punkster.
