This place is the largest reconstructed tallgrass prairie in the United States, which is pretty cool. I could sit and watch the wind blow through the grass for hours. They have wild buffalo too. We got really lucky seeing the calves that were born just the week prior. Before crossing the road, the mother stopped and looked both ways!
