Another "slough"! This one is a Federal wildlife refuge in the Willamette valley outside Salem, Oregon, on a remarkably clear day. The inset shows the official sign. (Due to the goofy way Google shows place names, this is "Dallas." Turns out there's a Dallas, Oregon just outside Salem.)

It's "sloo" here; rhymes with "moo," not "cow!"

In the Ozarks we say "sloo" but it looks to me more of what we would call a Pond.( a large one at that)

Heh. The area is really more a set of wetlands, so Baskett "Sloughs" would probably be better! Here's a picture looking northeast across the area from Oregon SR 22:

The original pic is on the other side of the valley, off this pic to the left.
