The trail through the tall savanna grass wasn’t even a foot wide. It was August, a time for wildflowers in the nearby prairie. My camera was ready.
Up ahead was a field of yellow blossoms, but the trail faded in and out as the wind blew. I stopped. It was my first time here and I was alone. I could get lost if I took those photos, but I wouldn’t be back.
I took the photos. That was not my smartest move.
