Top 20 Photos of 2013 from American Prairie Reserve
Looking back over a year’s worth of photos, the prairie weaves an ever-changing tale of drama, peace, microscopic detail, magnitude, and resilience. The seasons become less defined, and the decade I’ve spent helping build American Prairie Reserve blends in a single, long journey. As you scroll through our snapshots from the field, I hope you get a sense of this back and forth battle between wildness and solitude that’s inherent in grassland ecosystems. It’s part of what makes them uncommon in today’s world and necessary for humans and wildlife alike. See you on the trail in 2014 – you never know what lies ahead on the prairie.
