  • An EXCELLENT overlook if you are interested in learning more about the prairie and the grasses. There are signs that explain what is going on and a short walk of about a block each direction. It is a nice change from all of the overlooks of the Badlands, not that they are bad, but it was nice to understand the grasslands better.
