This is the top level of the terraced hillside camping area. It is where the Buffalo Buds Office and Cabins are located now. This pic was made several years ago.

This is the field at the top of the hill. The land is leased to a farmer and he alternates crops in the field. This year must have been a 'resting' year for the rich bottom land, as there is nothing growing there but weeds. The dirt road back to the highway runs along the right side of this field at the treeline.
