I try to hike daily and go to a different park. Often I have a few I attend to regular, such as yesterday taking a friend out to show a few places I enjoy. I feel it is like visiting my relatives, especially having watched areas I have helped replenish and share an almost direct family orientation with. I had looked at moving a few years back and would find it hard leaving my prairie for anywhere else. I laughed when my friend asked if I would consider a road trip to an Amish community to explore, and thought buying gas was like fine wine to me, putting thousands of miles each year around the state.
Welcoming a new day as a treat to be part of this world.

A burn replenishes the prairie with new life. Some seeds need this help to germinate and it opens up areas for all the plants to compete and survive. This is at the Red Feather Prairie.
