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 "valley residents have vowed not to give up their fight against the dawn, although its eventual completion seems almost certain. Every Sunday evening they continue to pray together for a miracle that will save their homes and villages. Theme for this meeting was 'yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil'".
