We know we're starting to get close when our Flint Hills turn to more gentle, soft hills ...
|South Central Kansas|
... then the landscape flattens out altogether!
|Cheyenne Bottoms Wildlife Area|
On our way from Cheyenne Bottoms to Quivira, we saw lots of Sunflowers growing alongside the road!
|Sunflowers! ... and a dragonfly at about 11 o'clock!|
And more inside Quivira itself:
Here is a shot of some of the marshland:
If you look closely, you can see American White Pelicans, Great Blue Herons, and assorted ducks!
On the way home, we stopped in Ellinwood to do a little walking:
|I'm not really cranky; the sun was in my eyes!|
We also had a snack and a water break:
|"You get a drink, Cam. I've got your six!"|
|"Don't worry; there is plenty for both of us!"|
"Slurp, slurp ..."
After that, it was back through the hills and homeward!
Thank you for letting us share the beauty of our state with you! We ❤ Kansas!
