Winding trail through prairie at dawn, Grasslands National Park

Winding trail through prairie at dawn, Grasslands National Park – East Block.

The image was taken just before sunrise at the Dawson’s Viewpoint in East Block of Grasslands NP. This particular location on a ridge west of the Poverty Ridge Warden Station provides a great view of the badlands in East Block. Follow the marked fire trail that passes by the warden station. As soon as you enter the park (drive through a gate in barb wire fence), park you vehicle in the designated parking area and continue on foot. DO NOT drive on the prairie as your actions will damage the fragile ecosystem. A good example of past irresponsible behaviour can be seen in this picture.
