As I entered back into Kansas there was the familiar rolling wheat fields and large clouds of dust in the distance generated by the combines cutting the golden, ripe wheat. There was the staggering heat and the wind that comes with it. I even find that endearing. There was the large wind farms near Ellsworth. The grace and beauty of the wind turbines are hard to explain. There were hills dotted with cattle happily grazing in the lazy summer day. Kansas in the summertime. It’s a beautiful place and I’ve come to love it very much.
And no, in case you’re wondering, I did not (and never have) encountered Toto or Dorothy! The only Toto-like creature I’ve encountered are the four-legged pets! 🙂
There is something special about the Kansas Flint Hills! I love the mountains, too, but returning to the Flint Hills is a distinctive experience.>>Dr. Bill 😉>>Personal Blog: http://flinthillsofkansas.blogspot.com/>>Our 22 county Flint Hills Tourism Coalition, Inc. promotes experiential tourism visits to the Kansas Flint Hills – the website is: http://www.kansasflinthills.travel/
