Tallgrass Prairie

Nothing going on so I just wanted to share photos from last winter at the Tall Grass Prairie Preserve near Pawhuska, Oklahoma. The preserve was the original Barnard Ranch and was home and work place to Ben Johnson, cowboy actor and his father, who most of you know. Ben is a local favorite and he and his family are buried in the Pawhuska cemetery. The original bison were donated by a local ranching family from Bartlesville and the herd has grown considerably. I love going out there to visit and encourage you to do the same. My poor Denali still had mud coming out from under the molding from this trip when you wash it!


  1. Great photos! A little too cold for me! I like sand and warm beach weather! It is getting colder here, soon I will have to build a fire! Have a great weekend!

  2. I hope you had a good weekend! You haven't been writting anything so you must be having fun (drawing I presume)! I hope your bruise is better and you were lucky to only have a bruise! That is how my uncle got his teeth knocked out! His ropin' horse was so gentle but he spooked when walked up behind one unlucky day ...and teeth!

  3. Oh! THat's awful! Poor guy! I was very lucky! He could have shattered my knee or hip! It is still sore! I can hardly sleep at night! The bruise is gone, but it is still painful. I will be seeing the doctor tommorrow. I think I might have a blood clot or something? (Nothing serious I'm sure)
    I love all your music choices btw!
