Summer is over. But, memories carry on. This is a short collage of a summer's excursion to a western part of the Kansas Outback--the Smoky Valley Ranch of The Nature Conservancy in Kansas. Leading the way is a feisty female Eastern Collared Lizard. Highlighted are exposures of cool stuff in Scott and Logan counties. Natural beauty of Kansas is where you find it. All you have to do is look.
