Gunnar Emilsson sent this photo to me. He thought the recent high water event on the Yellowstone River had exposed this structure along the south bank of the river, about 1/4 mile or so upstream from where the old wagon bridge crossed the river on Fort Keogh land.

Gunnar speculated it might be the remnants of a hand-dug well possibly dating back to the early days of Fort Keogh. The well was likely a distance of 50 - 100 feet or more from the riverbank when it was built but over time the river has meandered its way toward the well.

I'm a little miffed that Gunnar didn't send that to me. He can consider his personal "Hardy Hot Dog Hotdogger Discount Card" revoked.

:had to happen sometime:

Sorry, Frank, but I knew Dave had an Imgur account and didn't know you had one too.
