The Kolden Report: Montana Back Roads, Part Eleven, November 27, 2013



Hello, kids!

Tomorrow is Thanksgiving and I want to take this opportunity to thank all of you for your support and encouragement.  How lucky can a girl get!

December 7th is the bazaar at the high school gym Wolf Point.  I am working on new pieces for the event and would love to see you!  This year I'll be offering a limited number of 2014 calendars.  I had hoped to complete a new book in time but that isn't going to happen.  "The best laid plans of mice and men...."
 I'd love to see you at the bazaar so stop and visit if you get the chance and be sure to sign up to win!  As always, the bazaar is going to be full of "shopportunities" and local artist Lance Johnson is even rumored to be there, although I have yet to confirm this. 


Now, back to the report.  This edition covers Gibson Dam.  Enjoy!





Lower.





High water mark is just that.  A mark!





The bigger picture.





How it came to be.





How it once was.





Aptly named:  Sun River Canyon.





Winter taunting.




"The kiss of the sun for pardon,
the song of the birds for mirth,
one is nearer gods heart in a garden,
than anywhere on earth."                                   - seen high above Gibson Reservoir.







Reaching...





Steadfast.





A tiny bit of concrete went into that dam!





Why are the shorelines "shapely"?





Deco edge.





Ragged and jagged.
