“Yet, there seemed to be a smell of salt in the night air and, as winter came upon me and the first snows fell, I saw shapes and lines as on sandy beaches ………….  As the prairie grass blew and rippled in the Chinook wind I imagined this place when once it was ocean and wondered in awe at how small I was."
