Prairie weekend

I had a prairie kind of weekend: I went to visit Rocky Ridge Farm, where Laura Ingalls Wilder lived for more than 60 years and wrote the "Little House" books:


got up close and personal with some bison at Prairie State Park:



and rounded off my 19th-century field trip with a visit to the now-defunct US Army Fort Scott:


Oh, and I also went to a "dessert lounge" for the first time ever. Kind of the antithesis of a prairie experience:


Is this a thing now? It would be nice to know just how out of the loop I'm getting while I'm off examining calico sunbonnets and such.

What adventures did you have this weekend?
