If you drive far enough east out of Matfield Green, KS you’ll find yourself in this beautiful valley. The sculpted hills have a thin veneer of soil and grasses over rock, making it mostly grazing country rather than farming. This landscape, ever expansive and offering innumerable big views, also encourages you to lie on your belly and study how a single blade of prairie grass emerges after a prairie burn.
