We just had a cold front roar thru. Instead of the 90’s tomorrow we will be in the upper 70’s and mid 50’s. The dust is from the wheat field across the road. I took this photo just as the storm was coming in. I had to go inside as I couldn’t see!! I can’t imagine what the Dust Bowl during the 30’s was like. We did receive 2″ of rain!
I hope this is a sign of an early fall.
Butler County, KS is the largest county in the State. It sits on the western edge of the Flint Hills. Here is a link to different tours for the area. Please call ahead, as some of the restaurants have closed.

These bridges are best photographed from down below. I always have jeans and boots on, but there were a few places I didn’t want to go thru as there was a lot of poison ivy! Thankfully I didn’t see any snakes! Wylie was in his “pouch” for most of these photos!

Just down the road from Bridge #5 was this old school.

I liked the photo so much and asked to see it in sepia. Really like the way it look, and decided to do it on canvas. This photo was also featured on the Facebook page of Double D Ranchwear, who sells the Trapper by Lane cowboy boot.
Good boy ❤️ 🐾
