Beautiful scenery and buffalo were just over the ridge. Also saw lots of buffalo bones near old watering holes. The wind was particularly strong at the intersection at trail 7 so I followed it up the hill and found a great view and gusts of wind that almost took me to my knees, which felt wonderful.

Basically just walking on a dirt road, but the views are nice.

I did Wind Cave Canyon Trail over to Highland Creek trail and around on Centennial for a decent loop. There were a lot of elk and bison, plenty of prairie (and a ton of fat prairie dogs), followed by some nice hiking in the woods.
