On Saturday evening, Justin, Gracie and I attended the annual Symphony in the Flint Hills. It was exactly what the name suggests: a performance by the Kansas City Symphony held about 1.5 hours outside of the city in the Middle of Nowhere, Prairie, Kansas.
The event is a fundraiser for the Flint Hills region, which is home to a vast expanse of untouched tallgrass prairieland. At one point in time, 1/3 of the continent was prairie - today, 95% of the little that remains is in the state of Kansas.
Fortunately, the weather cooperated and the show went off without a hitch, complete with gorgeous sunset and a cattle stampede in the background.
