Odd Mounds

If you wander around Western Oklahoma, you see interesting windmills broken by the wind that once gave them life... or black cows in green fields next to red roads.

From the interstate, I always see a set of odd-looking mounds in the distance. For years, I have wanted to drive over there and investigate them.

So a few days ago I left the beaten path--or driven- upon path if you will--and explored. For all you people who have wondered, here's what they look like up closer.

There are actually several sets of them. Some are being mined for red gravel or maybe potting soil. Others, grass covered, just sit there and look knobby. Cows graze around their skirts.

This one was outlined in hay bales.

Love the occasional other-worldly landscapes of the prairie.

Wow, there is so much to see around your home. Perhaps it's time for me to come and visit you!
