Towers of Time
Icons of the Plains
Our stone lithograph in the living room shows them looking to the south. We always think of them looking to the north.
"The tops of the Pawnee Buttes were once a continuous part of the surface of the High Plains. The land surrounding the buttes has been eroded away, revealing fossil bearing rock layers that represent the passing of a hundred million years." from signage at the parking lot.
There is a nice parking area with sheltered picnic tables and a restroom. And off in the distance a lot of windmills generating electricity. Tall monstrous things, gently turning in the wind. If you click on the picture below you can almost see them looking like pins stuck straight in the ground along the horizon.
Beauty on the vast,
almost colorless prairie.
Thanks, Sarah and Alex, for the wonderful trip and birthday weekend out here on the eastern plains.
