Standing at an overlook above the Reserve’s Dry Fork region, an inspiring view captures the timelessness and endless possibilities of the Montana prairie. Summer rains flooded the landscape with a rolling sea of green and wildflowers. Newly arrived migratory birds join newborn fawns to create a swell of activity and life. This is a place of intangible optimism, where long-billed curlews fly overhead and their cries echo across the ocean of grass.
