The Pawnee Butte trail winds through the short-grass prairie to the landmark West Pawnee Butte. It starts out in a cow pasture, then winds down through gullies beside white chalk cliffs. We saw many different bird species, including hawks and lark buntings. We also saw several short-horned lizards and pronghorns. We got pictures of the lizards, but the pictures of the pronghorns all showed their rumps as they disappeared over a rise.
