No Trees On The Prairie

I was struck by the lack of trees when I first drove across the prairies about 40 years ago.

So why don't the trees grow here?


Those are round hay bails that we always make fun of cause they look like giant Muffets.
They weigh over 1/2 a ton (or tonne if you're metrically inclined) and the report from the locals is that they blew as much as 5 miles in the wind. Happened last year but I never saw pictures like this before.

A Hat Tip to SDA and Larry Webber who posted this along with some other photos.
