Call me lazy, its true. I took a ton of pictures at the falls yesterday. The water was roaring. So different then when we were there 3 weeks ago. I know I should just pick a few to show but am strapped for time so will just warn you. Lots of pictures, lots of them similar.
Sioux Falls granite is apparent on many of downtown buildings. They are the same colors as the rocks in the falls. What is weird about the falls is they foam this time of the year. The water looks like you have dumped soap in it and foam is flying all over. You can see it in some of the pictures. The water also smells, sulfur dioxide I think.
I was very disturbed to see a ton of trash in the water and on the banks. That really really ticks me off. Pigs that can't pick up their garbage and dump it all over so the rest of us have to look at it. Hundreds of pop bottles, water bottles, Styrofoam cups, makes me sick. I see parents walking their children and toss their bottle on the ground. Sometimes right by a garbage can. What kind of example are they setting?
I am very verbal about it when I see it. I mean, we have a much bigger problem with the trash people are dumping all over then global warming. I would much rather see them enforcing those laws then the new smoking laws. Where are our priorities. I guess since the government can't find a way to tax us for it they haven't paid it much attention. Anyway, off my soap box. Enjoy the pictures and look again at the frozen ones, quite a difference.
