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

Flint Hills Clearing Spring Storm

Flint Hills Clearing Spring Storm

I followed this spring thunderstorm east from Wichita to the Flint Hills ranch where I often shoot. In its wake, the muddy roads were a challenge, but as the storm receded toward the southeast and the low sun illuminated the recently-burned hills, the view was worth the effort. Near Cassoday, in Butler County, Kansas. April 24, 2003.
