were you in the Flint Hills? I drove through that area over 20 years ago
and thought that they were very beautiful. I read somewhere that the hills
are a stronghold for Topeka Shiners.

I lived in Kansas in my youth around Wichita and East of there. I did (and
still do) find the "barren wastes" beautiful once you take the time to look.
Living in the pacific northwest has changed my comfort zone. I like trees
around me now. There were plenty in the Flint Hills. They were deciduous
rather than coniferous, trees all the same! The journey was a pleasure,
thanks again Luke!

Luke said there was a slim chance that we might admire the beauty of the
Topeka Shiner momentarily. That pleasure was denied us.
