About

Published on Sep 21, 2015

Here's another video from my mini vacation back to Minnesota. I visited the Sand Prairie Wildlife Management and Environmental Education Area. It was an absolutely beautiful area and visiting in late summer was just perfect. I would suggest visiting any prairie during the 'golden hour' when the tall grasses and late summer flowers absolutely glow!

The first half of the video is a bit of me talking, but if you'd like to just see the sights and listen to some nice music skip ahead a few minutes! It's worth the view.
