    Default Son of Little River - Backyard Watershed Project

    This miniaturized Little River might be like the Roy Neary character played by Richard Dreyfuss in Close Encounters of the Third Kind (Columbia Pictures, 1977). In the flick the "Indiana electrical lineman experiences a close encounter with a UFO" after which he "becomes increasingly obsessed with subliminal, mental images of a mountain-like shape and begins to make models of it." At first Devil's Tower was replicated with his mashed potatoes at dinner and then (following his wife leaving with the kids) with shovels of soil hurled though a window into the house, piled high on the family's dining table where it was hosed down and sculpted.


    Littler Little River's streambeds in order from the bottom to the top of photo: West Prong, Middle Prong (and tributaries: Thunderhead Prong, Sams Creek and Lynn Camp Prong) and East Prong (featuring The Sinks and Metcalf Bottoms).
    I confess to using considerable proportioning license. Middle Prong is particularly under represented, but our lot is only so big and... and the neighbor didn't much care for the idea of my ditching his.
