Anything is good, in moderation. I cook because I love to and because I can share with those around me. I crochet for the same reason.

Do what you want to do, enjoy what you do and use it to touch those around you.

Week 43 - 38.97

This week I learned about the Dakota Prairie Grassland.  These are not the normal, contiguous National Parks Service type of park.  These are preserved areas intermingled with other national and privately owned lands.  From the website:

Map of the Dakota Prairie Grasslands

Welcome to the Dakota Prairie Grasslands, where pristine vistas inspire the imagination; where the rugged unspoiled beauty of the land invites exploration; and where the sights and sounds of the wide, rolling prairie stimulate the senses.

Stretching over 1,259,000 acres, the Dakota Prairie National Grasslands offers visitors the opportunity to view elk, antelope, whitetail and mule deer, bighorn sheep, coyotes, sharptail grouse, pheasants, wild turkeys, eagles, falcons, and the busy prairie dogs. Recreational opportunities offer hiking, camping, horseback riding, photography, canoeing, fishing, hunting, and backpacking.
