083 BLACK HILLS PRAIRIE

Add to Cart Add to Lightbox Download
Wind Cave National Park, South Dakota Rimming the Black Hills, a rolling sea of prairie spills out in all directions, marked by large stones dropped by retreating glaciers, rusty red soils and stately lone cottonwoods: prairie signposts that still remember when the great thundering herds of bison and packs of wolves roamed this vast landscape. Today in the Northern Plains, regions like western South Dakota hold some of best remaining examples of large, unbroken tracts of prairie with surviving pockets of biodiversity, and perhaps hold the best promise of larger scale ecological restoration on the Great Plains grasslands.
