This is a great place to visit any time of year with wildflowers and sand hill cranes in the spring, lush greenness of summer, changing colors of fall and icicles on the cliffs during the winter.
The world-famous, Kickapoo River snakes along the northerly boundary. The word Kickapoo, in the Native American language, means to go here and there, or crooked, and no other name would be more appropriate for the river which bears that name.
