The Windy High Plains of Oklahoma

Buffalo grazing near the road.

There is something so peaceful about being in a place where the only thing that breaks the silence is the lowing of the buffalo and the sighing of the wind……(and of course the kids laughter!). We traveled to the Tallgrass Prairie Preserve in Oklahoma last weekend. It was visually very different from our last visit in the early summer, since this time the grasses were brown and the air was very dry.  The buffalo were much easier to spot this time. The winter in the high plains has a beauty all its own.

This statue welcomed us to the visitor center.

It is not hard to image large herds of buffalo roaming the grasslands.
