Clark County, Kansas [two postcards]
Bison have come a long way from when they were reduced to just dozens; there are a number of locations in the country (and in Kansas) where you can see them in something close to their natural setting.
The Clark County (Big Basin) preserve in southwest Kansas is one of the better places to see them. It's undeveloped and hardly visited. You are able to walk off from the dirt road to get a real feeling for the prairie.
In this case, there were a couple of Buffalo walking across Little Basin. I figured the steepness of the sides would keep them from coming my way, but I was wrong. The steep climb didn't slow them down one bit.
The smaller photo is of Jacob's Well which is a sink in Little Basin (also a sink) that never runs dry, and so has been a focal point for travelers for thousands of years.
