PRAIRIE VISTA HIKING TRAIL Wind Cave National Park, South Dakota

Hiking Team: Dave Miller, Rosie Miller

Date: June 17, 2022

This 1.75-mile trail meandered from the national park visitor center along Wind Cave Canyon to the original cave entrance, a blowhole that was originally a 10” x 14” hole in the ground. The cave is said to” breathe”, as air continually moves in or out.  The cool air blowing out of the hole was like an air conditioner which felt great on this 92-degree day. The trail went on to crest a hill and became part of the largest remaining mixed-grass prairie in the USA.  We could see cute prairie dogs just off the trail in the canyon and bison in the distance.
