Flint Hills - John Morrison

Flint Hills

The Kansas Flint Hills, formed by the erosion of Permian-age limestones and shales, extend from Marshall County, in the north, to Cowley County, in the south, and are known as the Osage Hills in Oklahoma. Named for the embedded bands of chert, or flint, the Flint Hills region is one of the last great preserves of tallgrass prairie in the country. —Kansas Geological Survey

Beaumont Fence

In this view (looking south) an early morning shower is receding (uncharacteristically) toward the southwest, and the rising sun is illuminating both the trailing low clouds and the summer grass. Just east of Beaumont in Greenwood County, Kansas. July 12, 2003.
