Mary led the departmental fall trip to the Black Hills in 1991, my sophomore year. That trip we camped in the Badlands and experienced a flash flood one night during heavy storms. The majority of the tents literally floated away and everyone was so wet that Mary decided to punt on cooking that night and we went to the restaurant in the park for dinner. This flood was after we spent days in the Black Hills talking about the 1972 flood. And we were living in a geomorph demonstration of what heavy rain in low vegetation can be like.
