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

Teter Rock May Sundown

Teter Rock May Sundown

Teter Rock is twelve miles east of Cassoday in Greenwood County, Kansas. In the 1950s, James Murle Teter persuaded an oil pipeline crew to drag this limestone monolith a couple of miles and erect it on a ridge that divides the Cottonwood, Verdigris, and Walnut watersheds. There's a fascinating Teter Rock chapter in Jim Hoy's book, Flint Hills Cowboys. May 31, 2015.
