Greenwood County, Kansas

The Flint Hills stretch across Kansas, from Washington and Marshall counties in the north to Cowley County in the south. This photo, taken at sunset just northeast of Beaumont in the southwestern corner of Greenwood County, shows the rich autumn colors of bluestem grasses that thrive on these flint-encrusted hills. The Flint Hills are the last large region of native tall-grass prairie in the U.S. (from The Geologic Record, vol. 1.2).
