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

Dawn at Teter Rock

Dawn at Teter Rock

I was at the Teter Rock site hoping for a sunrise photo. The cloud deck prevented any view of the sun, but as soon as the sun had risen a bit, its light struck the tops of the clouds and diffused downward as pink dabs of color. East of Cassoday in Greenwood County, Kansas. October 13, 2003.
