Kansas is known for many beautiful things, such as wide open spaces, beautiful sunsets, and gorgeous sunflowers. We were fortunate to find all three of those things within this photo opportunity during a summer visit to the Monument Rocks in Western Kansas.
The Monument Rocks are one of the Eight Wonders of Kansas and are a truly unique geological formation you wouldn't expect to see in an otherwise flat area of the plains. Though there are no formal hiking trails in this area, you can enjoy a short walk around and between the rocks.
The winding dirt road that leads you to the Monument Rocks takes you through an unexpected and beautiful valley. Do yourself a favor and visit around sunset to enjoy an amazing evening view of Kansas!
