Notes on the Geography of Oklahoma: Norman 1: The Agrarian Background: Photo 1

world pictures Oklahoma: Norman 1: The Agrarian Background

Not an inspiring picture? Maybe, but interesting in its own way. Norman is on the left bank of the Canadian River, which flows from the Sangre de Cristo Mountains of New Mexico to the Arkansas River of eastern Oklahoma. The flow varies hugely over the course of the year, and many parts of the streamcourse are dry in the summer. Here, looking like a sea of gravel, is the river during a dry spell. Norman is hidden on the left. Sadly, most Normanites believe that the only good river is a mountain river, so the city's devotion to the river amount to appreciating it as a source of sand and gravel. Not so long ago, the bank around the bend downstream was also the city's so-called sanitary landfill.
