Standing Rock in Steedman

My wild brother was attacked by a goose in K.C. years ago. He "killed" it with his bare hands, put it in his backpack to clean and eat later. He used to hunt and fish a lot. Like the deer that get hit by vehicles in movies, it wasn't dead. It started making a ruckus in his pack as he walked down the city streets. Funny...I had a couple of Burrowing owls threaten me this morning. They hissed (hooed?)as I jogged near their nests which were right by the sidewalk down here in Florida. Anyway, the goose freaked him out so much he let it go. Maybe it moved to the Standing Rock (-:

We walked all around this rock and didn't see marks for floods.

Are there actual marks that a person should be able to see?

Or is there just the idea that in the past people made some marks that are now gone?

When I saw it last year, the marks were faded. They were pretty high up on the rock and if memory serves, on your right side if you are facing the rock from the trail.

Be on the lookout for a territorial goose that was lying down in front of standing rock and we were not able to pass a few weeks ago. It was a bit scary as he kept flying in front of us and hissed at us. We had to get off our bikes and use that as protection.

Trigirl, that goose attacked me!! He swooped on me once, and then sat on top of the rock giving us the evil eye!

Jerry, thanks for confirming! I couldn't see anything. I guess I imagined that someone would have chiseled the marks in, but I think I just imagined that.
