GigaPan; Canon SD850 4x optica...


This view of the Konza Prairie beyond the interstate to the north is found near mile marker 311 along I-70 in eastern Kansas. The horizons seen in this 360 degree pan range from about a half mile to nearly 20 miles away. The Konza Prairie is a 3,487 hectare (~8,600 acres or 13½ square miles) native tallgrass prairie preserve owned by The Nature Conservancy and Kansas State University and operated as a field research station by the K-State Division of Biology. The Flint Hills are steep-sloped and overlain by shallow limestone soils unsuitable for cultivation. This region encompasses over 50,000 km2 (or nearly 20,000 square miles) throughout much of eastern Kansas from near the Kansas-Nebraska border south into northeastern Oklahoma and contains the largest remaining area of unplowed tallgrass prairie in North America.
