I meant to be here a week ago with these pictures, but between computer glitches and my head exploding with thoughts of Christmas gifts, it didn't happen.
So today while I drive east to celebrate Thanksgiving with our cousins, here are a few photos from our hike last Saturday.
This three mile loop through the Konza Prairie has quickly become my favorite thing about Manhattan. As you walk along the trail, you can imagine yourself as Laura and Mary rolling along with Ma and Pa and baby Carrie and their bulldog, Jack. The sky is so big and the trees are so few.
Although the wind was blowing about 30 miles an hour, we had a beautiful morning for our hike. It was 65 degrees at 9:30 and only a few fluffy clouds in the sky. Glorious sunshine compensated for the wind. Quite a contrast to last year's cold and grey Cub Scout Day on the Konza.
And in true Kansas fashion, 20 minutes after we got home the sky clouded up and that strong wind turned cold, making us all the more thankful for our splendid time out on the Prairie.
