On this trip we are learning about our relationship with the rural landscape and all that it has to offer. A part of this is the relationship with the animals. Today at the Tallgrass Prairie National Preserve I saw horses, bison, and cows- all of which I feel I was able to make a strong connection with. I almost got the sense that we were making direct eye contact and that they were able to see something deeper within me that otherwise humans would easily look past. It made me think about the attraction that draws two creatures toward each other and even if only from a distance, the two are able to acknowledge and appreciate the other.
