To visit any prairie in Nebraska is in a sense a visit with our very distant relatives, each of which has its own story to tell, if we will only try to understand. Although each season is different, autumn in a Nebraska prairie is a very special time to visit. Life has by then come full circle, and it is a perfect time to sit or lie down in the grass, to enjoy the sights, sounds and smells of nature close at hand and to at least briefly merge one’s soul with our natural world.
