Point of Rocks, Morton Co. Kansas

This is probably my favorite place on earth. Point of Rocks was a lookout for settlers on the Sante Fe Trail. You can still see the wagon ruts that follow the Cimarron River from the point. There were some poor farming practices in the 20's so when drought hit in the 30's the Dust Bowl also hit.

Morton County was one of the most devestated areas, but slowly the area recovered and was designated Cimarron National Grassland. Which is where yours truly has spent many a morning, day, and evening birding.
