This one gets dogged at times, but I liked it. The view was good (especially the distant Rocky Mountains to the SW). The buffalo were interesting. Finally, there's something humbling about these Plains Highpoints. They seem so remote, that I get a real sense of gloom and reverence from them. Must be the wind.

I actually got my car stuck in the mud on the approach road on this one :-). The rain stopped and we were greeted with a really nice rainbow... so I guess the 2 hour diversion and the "climb" was worth it.

I am a highpointer. I have done 21 highpoints at this point. The highpoint trail is 1.3 miles long, and I ran up the whole way, which took me a little over 9 minutes. The view at the top of the highpoint is nice. I could just barely make out the Rocky Mountains to the Southwest. There is a Bison ranch below the highpoint, with a bunch of Bison. At some point in the recent past, they were on the trail to the highpoint, going to the bathroom. Maybe the trail is where they go to use the bathroom? This was my 14th highpoint.
