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

After April Showers

An April thunderstorm is rolling off to the east away from us, leaving behind a muddy ranch road and ash-ringed puddles across the recently burned prairie. On the Shadow Valley Ranch southeast of Cassoday, Butler County, Kansas. April 24, 2003.
