This is a paved road closed to traffic. Beautiful scenery, rolling hills and fields with cattle. Lots of prairie dogs entertaining the pedestrians. Bicycles and runners using this stretch as well. If your dog likes to hunt prairie dogs keep them leashed.

This is a paved road closed to traffic. Beautiful scenery once passing houses. Rolling hills and fields with happy content cattle younger and older. It's of prairie dogs entertaining pedestrians. Bicycles and runners using this stretch as well. If your dog likes to hunt prairie dogs keep them leashed, there are huge colonies as you can see in hills. Ad they are curios! Enjoy!
