Flint Hills 360
September 29, 2011
This past weekend, after walking a mile and a half in the Flint Hills carrying full packs, we stopped on a high hill to rest and take in a 360 degree view.
What a beautiful and peaceful place.

Cattle, corn, wheat, beans, mud, snow, ice, and drought. Plenty of fresh air and quiet. Our life is sometimes heartbreaking, sometimes joyous, but never boring.

Can you just imagine what the first settlers must have thought when they first saw that wide open vista! They had come from a land of deep forests. This must have been the WOW moment.
Wow, and overwhelmed I would think. I always feel very small when I go there.
What a beautiful place!! Had to laugh at your hubby sitting in all those weeds. I wouldn’t have walked the 1 1/2 miles through them or SAT DOWN! I’d be worrying about getting jiggers…they love to dine on me! Thanks for showing us what us “jigger-a-phob’s” are missing.
Don’t have to worry about chiggers this time of year. They’re more of a June and July thing.
I ended up with a cover of jigger bites while working in the grasses around my beehives….last week!
Oh dear…..that stinks. I hate chiggers.
Ahhh,so relaxing to watch
So nice. I love the fact I can see forever. Makes me want to buy land there just to sit and do that…nothing else, just stare. They would think I was nuts, standing and whirling in a circle all day and sighing. I would be commited for sure.
They’ll have to commit me too then, cause that’s all I do is stand and stare when I’m there.
Thanks for sharing your video! I have only seen the Flint Hills in photos, so it was wonderful to hear the sounds too . . Crickets, the wind. Almost as good as being there.
I’m about to finish the book “Monte Walsh” which covers the wide open spaces of the west in the 1880’s. The Flint Hills look much like the author describes. I would love to be there at night and see the blanket of stars above.
After our sunset there, we walked back to the truck and by the time we reach it the stars were out. It was magical.
