Below are images from along the creek's historical route taken in July 2021. To read part of the story "In Search of the Rawhide," click here.

As Nathan followed the Rawhide to the Elkhorn, he noticed another blue line marking another creek near the Rawhide. He zoomed in and it was labeled "Rawhide Creek Old Channel." That old channel is marked in darker blue on the maps above and below.
