It seems like people either get the prairies or they don't. Some find the wide-open spaces inspiring and some find them boring, or even intimidating. I love the prairies of eastern Colorado and this area is no exception. The vast views, bird calls carrying for...More

It is just not my thing. There was nothing out there. You could see forever. And a certain peacefulness. But just not my thing.

A great day trip from the front range. Fun hike out to the Buttes. 2 miles each way. Bikes are ok, dogs are ok. Picnic area with informational signs at the trail head.

Great hiking and natural views! Fascinating for recent oil and gas exploration nearby--amazing and informative! Take food and water. Families will have fun. NOT near the mountains, but the buttes, flowers, and grassland is lovely.

We enjoy going to the grasslands to get the whole family out for target practice and also to do some clay pigeon shooting. Plenty of places to be able to go and have lots of space to shoot.

The Pawnee National Grassland is a sprawling high desert prairie in remote Northeast Colorado. The hike to Pawnee Buttes has long vistas and is relatively flat. The Buttes themselves are impressive. It is a long distance to gas or food, so come prepared. There are...More

Hi. I'm looking for Robert Moffitt, from a note I made in 1977. Is he an alumni of Colorado Outward Bound School -- Summer of 1969? If so, I'd like him to call me in Cincinnati -- 513-321-9880. Robert Funk
