Official State Soil: Harney 
October 26th 

This is a photo of the layers that make up a Harney soil profile. Harney: Grassland Soils. Layer 1: A very, very deep soil surface rich in decaying plant matter. Layer 2: The roots of the native prairie grasses that built this soil were this deep — and deeper! Layer 3: Rainwater does not regularly seep this deep, so lime accumulates rather than washing down and out.
