I Heart Kansas

I Heart Kansas

Kansas is an underrated state. For those of us that have lived here all our lives, it can be difficult to see beauty in the rolling hills, abundant plains and open vistas. But, in those lands are symbols of America and our way of life out here in Kansas. The windmills of the past and toil of the farmers show our dedication and hard work, and the new, rather controversial ones show our (although this is questionable as of late – thanks, Brownback!) progressive attitude and embracement of new technology.

It took a number of year to see it myself, but I Heart Kansas!  I took this photo while on a photo adventure day with my good friend and mentor, Laura George (http://wherethegoldbeesdream.blogspot.com), a fellow native.  We had a great day together roaming the dirt back roads, spotting windmills, wildflowers and wildlife amidst our bursts of laughter and conversation.  I hope to share more photos as I go through them!

Why I Can Still Tolerate Kansas!!

Say what you want about Kansas, but one of the many reasons Kansas is a great place to live is the presence of these beautiful sunsets!

This was one of those times when I wished I had my good camera with me. I shot this with my cell phone (non-iPhone, unfortunately!) from a window at work, so I don’t know that it gives justice to the beauty of the sunset, but I hope it gives an idea!
