Once spring snow melt began in earnest, culverts across the state channeled rushing water down stream. These large culverts at Apple Creek east of Bismarck moved water so quickly rapids were formed at the mouth of the culvert. Lowlands were flooded, but the ND DOT and other agencies seemed well-prepared to handle the erosive qualities of the runoff. I had heard about the flood potential at Apple Creek. When I got there, I was surprised it wasn’t worse. I shot it anyway. Glad there was no severe flooding, but a bit disappointed that I didn’t have anything dramatic to shoot. Sick,huh.
