Why the Little Missouri River is Cloudy

A long time ago, when the Greek gods were still visible, a goddess named Demeter, the goddess of harvest, was in love with a god named Poseidon, sea-god, but Poseidon was in love with Amphitrite, the sea-goddess. Demeter was jealous, but she couldn't do anything to keep them apart. One day, when she was watching the two from the sky, she suddenly thought of a great idea. She could pour all her flour into the clear sea to get his attention and hopefully fall in love with her. She ordered her servants to put all the flour into the sea as quickly as they could manage. Poseidon soon saw what she was planning and soon grew angry. He demanded her to clean out the water, but Demeter could not do so. She told him that she could only take out the flour if she took away the water for a few minutes. The fish would die but he could make new fish. Poseidon agreed. She took all the water to the Little Missouri River and filled the ocean with salt water. Poseidon make sharks, crabs, and more ocean animals that could survive in the salty water. Demeter learned her lesson and she grew less jealous when she met Zeus. Now you know why the seas are salty and the Little Missouri River is cloudy.
