A Morning Walk On The Tallgrass Prairie

I took a short walk this morning on the loop behind the building. Here are a few of the things I saw on that quarter-mile hike.
Vervain blooming in front of the building.

My walking stick leaned up against the Drovers Trail sign.

A buffalo wallow. 

Big Blue Stem (or Turkey Foot) grass. It's getting tall! 

Black-eyed Susans. 

A nice stand of Prairie Cordgrass (a.k.a. Ripgut). You've got to be careful with this one. It'll cut you! 


More Prairie Cordgrass.

A bison chip.

Another nice stand of Prairie Cordgrass. It's so pretty right now!

Just a view across the tallgrass prairie.

Prairie grasses and berries. 

Prairie wildflowers. 

Gayfeather (or Blazing Star) along the trail.
