Seeking to get a hike in, we travelled to nearby Buffalo Lake National Wildlife Refuge and hiked the Prairie Dog Trail and the Cottonwood Trail. The Prairie Dog Trail is a short 0.4 mile roundtrip trail out to what at one point was likely a prairie dog town, although there were no prairie dogs in sight. It was a nice walk however.
The Cottonwood Trail is longer - 2 miles roundtrip. I hiked it one way for a mile and Viv picked me up at the end as it was raining hard at this point. The trail travels through a short grass prairie with views of some small canyons.
