The prairie was a very beautiful sight to look at. The tall grass blowing in the wind looked so majestic. The colors in the prairie were mostly browns and dark greens, so I kept my eyes open for random pops of colors. One time, I saw a bright purple plant that caught my eye. When I looked throughout the prairie, it made me feel as if I was living in the old times. I loved to look at the different sights that we normally don’t see.
When I sat in the tall grass and listened, I heard the wind blow through the plants, and the rustles of leaves. Every once in a while I could hear the birds happily chirping. Listening to all the different sounds in the prairie made me feel relaxed and I wanted to explore more.
Walking on the land and breathing the fresh air was something new for all of us. I am not used to the sweet smell of outside. Usually I am inside all day surrounded by the stench of other people. So it was very pleasant to be able to smell the crisp air of outside.
I continued to explore the prairie and I could feel all the grass brushing up against my body. Some of the plants were very soft, but others were prickly and they hurt a little when they rubbed against me. There were some plants that I felt and they were fuzzy and others were sharp and pointy. It was interesting feeling all the different textures of things in the prairie.
So most people probably wouldn’t know what a prairie tastes like, but I tasted some of the plants and they all tasted kind of bitter and earthy. Also, sometimes when a person breathes in through their mouth, they can catch a taste of the smell. So when I deeply breathed in through my mouth, I could taste the fresh air and the cold from outside.
There were many unique sights, noises, smells, feelings and tastes in the prairie that I really enjoyed getting to experience.
