After all, it is our state animal and my kids and I had never seen one up close. We pulled into the Lone Star Ranch and had a picture perfect view of the snowy Kansas prairie and the herd, settled in and grazing just beyond the old fashioned country store. We were greeted right away by Terri Gibbs, who along with her husband Don, owns the property. The buffalo were a majestic sight indeed and unlike us, were not bothered by the winter temps in their thick fur coats.&nbsp; Thu, 10 Jan 2013 07:00:00 GMT http://www.travelks.com/blog/post/2013/10/Oh-Give-Me-a-Home-Where-the-Buffalo-Roam/2996/ Historical Recipes Served at Trail Days Café in Council Grove http://www.travelks.com/blog/post/2011/22/Historical-Recipes-Served-at-Trail-Days-Caf-in-Council-Grove/793/ Imagine dining on roast buffalo like the Native Americans or baked ham with strawberry sauce just as the early settlers did, with your meal delivered by servers in period costumes inside a Victorian era decorated home built in 1861 along the famous Santa Fe Trail.
