There’s Something Incredibly Eerie About The Flint Hills In Kansas

If I had to choose one thing that I love most about the beautiful state of Kansas, it would have to be the colorful and rolling Flint Hills. But how exactly did they get their name? Previously known as the Blue Stem Hills, the Flint Hills were renamed because of their abundance of flint (eroded from bedrock) hiding beneath the visible tallgrass prairie. While this area is nothing short of unique and gorgeous, it also has an eerie side to it, as shown by these photos captured by Kansas photographer Patrick Emerson.

During these uncertain times, please keep safety in mind and consider adding destinations to your bucket list to visit at a later date.
