This Trail In North Dakota Will Lead You Right To The Middle Of A Prairie Dog Town

Have you ever seen a prairie dog? Most people have likely heard of the large rodents that are known for popping in and out of holes in the ground. They live in huge colonies and make massive networks of underground tunnels out on the prairie, hence the name. North Dakota has its own fair share of these creatures, and you can experience them yourself by taking a trail that’ll bring you right into the middle of a giant prairie dog town.
