We all know there is a constant change in an urban city. This vista is a perfect example. When
the flooding happened in 2013 and many homes on the Flats were ruined, the city decided to
build a berm to hold back the floodwaters as a preventative measure. While growing up, you
often heard stories about the 100-year old, but the reality today is that it comes back every 10
Today the natural landscape of this vista has been altered with an entire section of cottonwood
trees taken out and replaced with river rock. I know the berm was a necessity, but I miss the old
100-year-old trees that lined the river causeway.
