Grand old barn near Rose Hill lake

This grand old barn stands alone near the site of the Rose Hill Dam. You can see the prairie in the distance (northeast). If you hadn't already heard, the Rose Hill Dam doesn't actually exist any more. It was washing out by torrential rains several years ago and now sis empty, except for a creek that passes through. There's the problem!

That creek that once fed Rose Hill now has Topeka Shiners, a small, shiny minnow fish that the SD Dept. of Game, Fish & Parks must protect. I'm not sure where the little fishies were when there was a dam at Rose Hill!barn IMG_0414
