Saltlover (Halogeton) which is poisonous to livestock.
I found a cow carcass scattered about in one spot. She's been out there a long, long time.
How about that expansive sky and prairie together? Breathtaking, isn't it?
Turning back toward home, you can faintly see the barns, granaries, hay corrals and homes. You can also see that the sky is changing and a cold front is blowing in. We've had high winds since dark and the winds are expected to hang around and increase for a few days as the temperatures drop. Combined, they will give us sub-zero wind chills between -15 and -20. Brrrrrr! We've had such a mild winter so far, that I shouldn't complain when Real Winter hits. (Well, I might complain, but it IS winter after all.)
