We’re not in Kansas anymore, Toto, oh wait, yes we are.

Well we actually headed for Kansas today for a slim possibility of storms today and also positioning ourselves for storms in the area tomorrow.
However the plan as it stands at 8:36pm for me is we’re heading towards Colorado tomorrow for some possibility of upslope action which may produce some super cells.
So today we headed for an unexpected land feature hidden in the endless plains of Kansas. The next few photos are from Monument Rocks, random outcroppings that look like they had been attached to nearby bluffs at some point. There’s some birds that like to nest in them as well. I was told they are wrens and they used to cover all the outcroppings with their nests. I have to wait until I can get to my laptop before I can upload any videos I took with my actual camera.

These are some bird’s nests, there was a different kind of nest around that was straw on outcroppings.

This was the view with my back to the outcroppings. See why they are anomalies?

All of those black dots on the left side of the rock are birds.

Think super cell thoughts for us tomorrow!!

  1. Wow! How did those rock formations even happen on such a flat, flat, flaaaaat landscape?!

  2. It had to be some process of erosion. Thanks for sharing these beautiful images.
