Above the High Plains

Rock Formations and Clouds, Monument Rocks, Western Kansas

In 1968 Monument Rocks became the nation's first designated National Natural Landmark. They consist of buttes, arches and pyramid shaped chalk formations that stand strikingly above the flat plains of western Kansas. In about 80 million years, they will be eroded low and flat enough to have a picnic on them.



  1. Astounding and imposing at the same time Doug.

  2. What a spacious feeling. Kansas, who would've thought?
