If you have the time, it is an interesting experience to take the inexpensive "tour" with one of the park rangers out into the prairie preserve. It's neat to be able see little more than green grass and cattle or bison for twenty miles or so in any direction. We learned so much - how the preserve's trust status works, how the grazing of cattle is intended to simulate the grazing of herds of bisons in earlier years, and that a goal is to re-introduce larger numbers of the native prairie animals in years to come.

I rode with Ranger Ron, who welcomed questions, stopped on occasions to take us on short walks away from the van to see geological formations, wildflowers in bloom, and to point out edible plants used by the Indians and early frontiersmen.

For more photos of my tour, see the travelogue, below.
