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.
