We decided to drive around town last evening with a goal to see the high waters around Minot and capture a few photographs. Nothing could’ve prepared us for what was really happening with the Souris River! Until you drive right up to it, it’s hard to really understand just how high it really is. The evening colors were just beautiful in between thunderstorms. We just couldn’t resist sharing a few from our drive.
