Badlands National Park & Prairie Prints For Sale
"I was born on the prairies where the wind blew free and there was nothing to break the light of the sun. I was born where there were no enclosures" - Geronimo
Between 40 and 64 million years ago, the Rocky Mountains and Black Hills rose to block the flow of Pacific moisture into the interior of North America. Newly evolved, grasses flourished in the changing climate and replaced the retreating forests. Their abrasive, high silica content discouraged early soft toothed browsers that preferred more tropical leafy vegetation. From the Rockies to the Appalachians and from Alberta into Texas, grasslands extended unbroken over a third of the continent and once supported some of the greatest herds of herbivores the world has ever known. The vast expanse was only occasionally interrupted by scattered slough and wetlands or ribbons of deciduous woodlands along the major streams and rivers. The space was open and the views endless. Although very little remains of the "American Serengeti" parks such as Badlands National Park, Theodore Rosevelt National Park and National Grasslands like Pawnee in Colorado, Buffalo Gap in South Dakota and Thunder Basin in Wyoming help to preserve the remaining grassland ecosystem and the flora and fauna that call this special place home.
