After the last post about foul things, I thought I would blog about fresher things like a walk in a partially restored prairie nearby. This part of Iowa has throughout history been partial hardwood forests and tall grass prairie. However, the prairie no longer exists except in a few places where it has been recreated. I doubt any original prairie exists in this area. After the family in my previous post spoiled our planned afternoon, we drove on down the road to a place we've hiked in the past and had it all to ourselves. This time I had my SLR with me so I got some better pictures.
