Yesterday, I visited Buffalo River State Park in Glyndon, MN. It is the largest remnant prairie in Minnesota.
Along the Buffalo River.
Flowers along the trail. There are over 200 species of wild flower on the prairie.
Panorama of the prairie. On the day I hiked on the prairie, the temperature was in the low 80s with wind gusts of 30 to 40 mph. Hiking 4 or so miles on the prairie helped illustrate how being the first settlers to this land would not have been easy. Life would be a struggle.
The settlers did not have a path of mown grass to walk across.
The Buffalo River got its name from the buffalo who would herd here for water and rest. Numerous buffalo skulls have been found along the river.
Boulders left behind by the glacier.
This enter region was once a lake that formed as the glaciers began to melt. The lake is known as Lake Agassiz.
