I’d forgotten this touristy event. I mean, when one burns the grass one tends to forget there is a fascination with the process to those that do not routinely do so.

CEDAR POINT, Kan. – Prairie burning – a Flint Hills tradition that dates back to Native American land management practices – requires a perfect balance of courage and caution.
Under supervision anyone with a match and a desire (and a camera) may join the fire lines and set the joint on fire; they can then stand there and watch it burn. Even taking pictures of the event.
Generally speaking, no one asks the fire setter to put the fires out. The tourist just watches it burn while the host worries about the details.
Yeah. It can be fun. Just bring your own coffee jug. Although sometimes one of the ranches will spread snacks.
