After a late afternoon visit to Pipestone National Monument we drove out to Touch the Sky Prairie. On our first visit to Touch the Sky we were fortunate that the prairie had been burned off a couple of weeks before our visit. This created an opportunity for some unique photography. It also happened that there was heavy fog in the morning that made for even better conditions.

 

Unfortunately the prairie had not been burned off on this trip. In addition the water levels in the stream that flows through the prairie were much higher.

As we were getting out of the car this dog came running down the road. He followed us as we hiked out into the prairie. While we were out in the prairie a couple of young men cam along. They thought she was our dog. They started playing with her and she followed them back to the car. As they started to drive off the dog parked herself in front of the car and wouldn’t let them leave. One of the young men got out and chased her away but by the time he made it back to the car the dog was once again in front of the car. This went on for about ten minutes. We were laughing our heads off.
