The Canadian River in Pottawatomie County. The river, which starts in New Mexico and crosses the High Plains before descending to the red rolling plains of central Oklahoma, has always been in the earth-moving business, but its silt burden jumped when farmers went to work on this land after the Land Run of 1889. The forest stretching back on either side of the river here is secondary.  Farmers cleared the original forest, put this land to cotton and corn for a couple of generations, as their soil eroded.
