Philip Meyer took a series of photographs showing residents of the Blue River Valley as they prepared to move from their homes and farms as part of the Tuttle Creek reservoir and dam relocation project. He captioned this photograph: "Some have already reached that moment which each valley resident may eventually face when, like a character in a Thomas Wolfe novel, he 'stands upon the hillside overlooking the town he has left, yet does not say 'the town is near' but turns his eyes upon the distant, soaring ranges.'"
