Afternoon Drive Into The Flint Hills

I took my first drive out into the vast Flint Hills today south of Emporia, getting off the pavement onto gravel roads for almost 60 miles. Other than a few puddles and some mud, along with the occasional herd of cattle, the scenery mostly consisted of hills covered with dry grass as far as I could see. Here are some shots I jumped out of the Jeep to take along the way.
