An article has appeared in 5280, The Denver Magazine about some hidden gems in Colorado, and although it did not receive a large write-up, Pawnee Buttes and Pawnee National Grassland got the cover shot, as well as a full two page spread kicking off the larger article. Well done!
With more articles like this one, it won’t be long before the awesomeness of the plains starts to reach a larger audience. As other places, like the mountains, become more crowded, people are going to seek out the solitude and space of the plains and prairies. They will soon realize that their reputation as being boring and flat is just a myth.
There are so many hidden gems out there. You just have to go out and find them, and the goal of the Great Plains Trail is to link together as many of these special places as possible in one long trail from Canada to Texas!
