Broken Kettle Flowers
Broken Kettle Grasslands is a huge place. It's the largest open prairie in the Midwest. There are wild buffaloes in there. The only problem is that it's closed off to the public most of the time. This place is kept specifically to preserve the area.
There are a few places where you can go to observe it from the outside, but you can't really go in. I've been to a place where I've seen evidence of the buffaloes, but they weren't there at the time. So I'm still searching for them.
What attracted me was this field of yellow. I didn't need to get close enough to find out the identity of the flowers. I know some of them are sunflowers and some of them are goldenrod. There is a third kind that I don't know about though.
That third kind will probably remain a mystery. Seeing that field of yellow all the time is the beauty of this place. Individual details are irrelevant. The picture really doesn't do this place justice. I wish I could have done better. Oh well.
I'm still looking for the identity of the birds I mentioned before. I'll share them as soon as I have it. I'll talk to you later.
