The blooms of pale beard tongue, rose vervain, and columbine appear among the spring foliage of Fults Hill Prairie. Eastern Redcedars cling to the edge of the limestone cliff where they can, for the most part, escape the effects of prescribed fire. Spring flooding along the Mississippi River has inundated Kidd Lake below.

Painted on location.
