We spent a delightful, but smoky, weekend in the Flint Hills. Mike participated in a hands-on workshop to experience the prairie fires - from behind the camera lens. I hope to show you a few of his fire photos soon!
Traveling down the turnpike on Saturday toward Emporia we saw these wonderful muffin-clouds. In my experience, there is often a tornado right around the corner from these babies... but we were able to escape!
We stayed in Cottonwood Falls at a great B and B called Stonehouse 1874. It was here we met Lucy and Ethyl (oops... this should be Ethel!).
This is the Buck Creek Ranch on the way to our B and B outside of Cottonwood Falls. This one is definitely old... the real deal!!! Fantastic...
Traveling north on 177 toward Council Grove is the Lower Fox Creek School. It has been carefully preserved. A real jewel.
