The thick grass growth is everywhere. That kind of growth is probably how it looked in the lower elevations 160 years ago before John Chisum came with his cattle. We are looking back in time at how the natural grass looked before cattle overgrazed this country. John Chisum moved huge herds of longhorn cattle from Texas to New Mexico in the mid 1800's. Thank God they did not climb into the higher elevations. Nice visual history of the higher elevations, Lincoln.
