    If you look at the horizon in this shot you can see clouds of geese.

    New to the board, but have lurked long enough to check out this entire thread. Kudos to all of the contributing photographers on this thread. Great work. Keep 'em coming.

    I've often said that as a KS native, I have an advantage over a lot of people in that I love my home because it's my home, and can travel and appreciate the relative beauty in most other places (implying that KS ain't much to begin with). In other words, I love KS but I get why others may not. Self-deprecating, if you will.

    But I've since changed my tone, and this thread supports that change. If a person can't see and appreciate the beauty of the Great Plains/Flint Hills, then that's their problem, not the territory's problem. :D

    I hope to contribute some pics soon. I like to dabble in photography, but by no means am I a pro. I'm even more of a novice on a motorcycle; my first-ever bike was delivered today. Can't wait to take the DSLR out on a ride, though....

    Another great day exploring the Plains. We wound up at the "Indian" Paint Mines near Calhan,Co. Cool place. The minerals are colorful, and I think the original habitants probably mixed those minerals with animal fats to make paint.
    Evidence of human use dates back about 7000 yrs.

    Looks like a really cool site 777. Was it mostly yellow and red colors in the minerals of that area?

    Man I miss the sound of meadow larks!
