PHOTO HUNT SATURDAY WATER

Our Lake

Water running in the 3 mile long irrigation ditch that my Great-great grandfather and his brothers dug over 110 years ago. It is still in use for several farms and properties.

I really like the second photo! It's so nice to have your family be part of your town's history like that.
