If beauty is in the eye of the beholder, there are over 2.7 million Kansans who think what we have is Kansas is indeed a sight to behold.

“I am not so sure but the prairies and plains,
while less stunning at first sight, last longer,
fill the aesthetic sense fuller,
precede all the rest, and make
North America’s characteristic landscape.”
Walt Whitman, 1878
