Very, very rare photograph of the last time Indian Mound in Northeast Kansas City erupted. According to native lore it was shortly before 1700. This picture was taken by a trapper who was just passing through. The photograph, which is a glass plate negative, can be found in the collection of the Smithsonian Institute.

These flowers, called Spring Beauties, come up toward the end of March and only last for a couple of days. They are very tiny, only as large as an average thumbnail.
