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

Gwen Hoy, of the Flying W Ranch, outfitted me with a horse so I could join them in a sunrise roundup. Before I was settled in the saddle, Jim Hoy pointed up the hill saying, "There's you shot!" On the Shadow Valley Ranch in Butler County, Kansas. July 21, 2015.
