Oh give me home... Where the buffalo roam...
We stopped at the Neal Smith National Wildlife Refuge on our way home from a college visit to Iowa State yesterday.
Not only was the prairie preserve awe-inspiring and breathtaking (even in this brown-grass time of year),
but the buffalo---
crossing the road in front of our car---
coming right up beside us,
close enough to touch--- I felt transported back in time.
(here's the shot you get when you hand your 14 year old son your camera. No cropping involved.)
Truly beautiful. If you're lucky enough to live in Iowa--- gotta go.
And if you're ever passing through this lovely state, it's a quick trip off the highway, and well worth the new perspective.
