post precipitation event driving tour of the Verdigris and Middle Coulees

Pasture as high as an antelope's eye

After the amazingly wet spring we have had, with snow and rain events that saturated almost the entire southern Alberta I had to look at the results of these events for myself.

So after a meeting in Milk River on June 24th I took the opportunity to drive through the Verdigris coulee and Middle coulee onto the Ridge Reservoir. Once the meetings were over and a delicious lunch in Milk River, off I went maps in hand.
