Celebrate Zeb Pike Month

Let's each join Flint Hill, Tall Grass in celebrating Zebulon Pike Month and using the opportunity to read and learn from the words of the early explorers of the Kansas Flint Hills region. They provide unique insights, especially as shared with us through the interpretation of our friend, Dennis Toll.

His quote from Sibley applies to the Flint Hills as well today as it did in the early 1800s. Would Pike and Sibley and others really recognize the Kansas Flint Hills, today? I think they would, if they stood in quite a number of selected spots that they described. This is a key aspect of the distinctiveness of the Kansas Flint Hills that is so important to preserve as a National Heritage Area. I hope each of you will join us in this effort.

Stop by the Heritage Tab at kansasflinthills.travel and participate! Enter a comment, below, to let us know you concur with our efforts to preserve the Heritage and the landscape of the Kansas Flint Hills so our grandchildren and their grandchildren will be able to enjoy the beauty and serenity just as Zeb Pike did, and we do today.

See you in the Kansas Flint Hills! ;-)
