Midwest Nature Quote of the Week

Fifty miles west of Delta and the broad flats of the Portage Plains, the land begins to lift and fold. It rises into a plateau 1,500 feet above sea level—a lovely farmscape with clumps and groves of pale-barked aspen, neat farmsteads, and fields of cereal grains. And everywhere, jewel-like little potholes fringed with dark bulrush, the brighter greens of cattails, and the creamy green of whitetop grass. This is the famed Minnedosa pothole region, a rare meld of highly productive grainlands and equally productive ducklands.
