"Big Basin Prairie Preserve & St. Jacob's Well" Ashland by basstbn

Ashland Travel Guide: 2 reviews and 14 photos


At present, this is not a page for Ashland, but for an out-of-the way Kansas prairie landmark for which there is no VT listing: Big Basin Prairie Preserve. St. Jacob's well, another site, is located within the prairie preserve.

This area is mixed-grass prairie - where the tall grass of the eastern plains mingles with, then gives way to the shorter grasses of the dryer,high plains in the west. Vast herds of bison roamed these plains for centuries, now they can be seen again, in smaller, managed herds.

For more information and photos, see my "Off the Beaten Path" tips.
