Kimbell and I were on our way back from painting in Chase County, and took a scenic drive North East of Alta Vista on old highway 50. This road was about ½ way between there and Alma. What we were looking for was a hill that had a good view of the surrounding area, and some shade. Well we found a good hill that my vehicle was able to navigate, but as far as shade, we had our hats. It was 105 degrees here in this midday sun when we finally said enough and headed home. A good day of painting on this trip to the Flint Hills.
