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

Roundup on the Shadow Valley Ranch begins at dawn. Beginning from a gathering pasture, the cattle are walked slowly behind a feed truck about three miles to the headquarters to be weighed and loaded on trucks. I perched on the back of the feed truck for this perspective. On the Shadow Valley Ranch near Cassoday in Butler County, Kansas. July 25, 2014.
