    It is always cool to see the polishing left by countless generations of Bison. A Farmer I know found the bones an ancient form of Bison on His land at a spring. The spring is in the middle of a flat field it is a pretty big mound from where the water flows and the bones were there. The U of M investigated the bones.

    Thank you

  • I wonder what kind of stones? The first looks like a frozen lava and similar to the sweetness of the halva :) . Others look different… There are experts? To share the knowledge. Thanks for the shot Jim.

    Wonderful video. Simple but so lovely seeing them all alone with only the grass and the wind for company.

    Lots of questions occur about these stones. Were they dropped by the melting ice sheet, maybe 10,000 years ago? They are both sharp edged in some places and smoothed out in others. I think maybe, if I remember correctly from last year, tomorrow’s video will show bison scratching themselves against them. Which raises the further question: how many, many times does it take bison rubbing to smooth those sharp edges? I’m so grateful for starting my day with this video. Thanks once again.

    Stone beings – powerful and strong, anchoring the land..

  • I keep forgetting these…..I follow for a while, then they drift away. Glad I have some friends that bring them back into my view

  • I agree with Cathleen on the stories they could tell! Wondering Jim if that is Pipestone Quartz?

    I’m fascinated by stones. As a child, if I saw a particular interesting piece of quartz I would bring it home. The video of those lone big stones on the prairie brings up questions. Were they pushed up from underneath by the heaving of the earth thousands and thousands of years ago? Or are they a part of a comet which tore itself away from it’s mother to land on earth millions of years ago.

  • Often the stones do tell some of their stories in sweat lodge — (inipi)

  • My thought exactly. Oh, the stories they could tell.

    love, love, love those beautiful stones and the peace of the prairie!
