Comanche Grasslands {Photos}

The Comanche National Grassland is a unique place to visit, especially when you're used to vacationing in the mountains and foothills. This time of year, there's not much to look at in terms of beauty per se, but come summer, the brown landscape will transform to a lush green. At that time, I'll be back for another visit (and to hike the 10.5 mile round-trip trail to the dinosaur tracks ... I know, nerd).

Despite the arid environment, you can't beat the serenity and stillness of a highly unvisited area where sky meets horizon every way you turn, or the satisfaction of enjoying a sunny spring weekend outside.
