Part of the Caprock Canyon Trailway, the Oxbow Trail is a pastoral stroll through cotton and peanut fields with an occasional crossing of a wooden gully bridge to disrupt the seemingly arrow-straight route. Small islands of wild vegetation float occasionally by in an endless red ocean of plowed fields, suggesting remnant bits of jetsam from the once vast prairie. A glance from horizon to horizon makes it easy to imagine the countryside hidebound in buffalo just as it was 150 years ago. It is also disheartening to imagine the thousands of pounds of their bones that ended up in bone china dinnerware.
