Don & I visited Herb this past weekend. For something to do the three of us drove up to Niobrara State Park. We found the highest point & observed the Missouri River flooding its banks. Highway 12 east & west of the city of Niobrara was closed, but we did not observe any flooding in Niobrara.

This is an old train bridge we hiked to within the park. A posted sign said the trail was closed due to flooding but Don & I disregarded the sign. The water was high but was not flooding the trail. We did not go on the bridge though & did heed the "keep out" sign.

We stopped for gas on the Santee Reservation & these sand bags were lined up on highway 12. We were east of Niobrara & the portion of closed highway.
