Western Prairie – 2018

[To see photos and stories of this prairie in other years, go to the links on the main Western Prairie page.]

We walk this way less often these days.  Now we have a ‘regular afternoon walk’ that we do most days, that takes us past the newest section of this prairie, but not the older sections.
