Kaw Point Noir

Kaw point, center, with the Missouri River on the left and the Kaw River on the right.  Kansas City skyline in the center.  Cottonwoods in the foreground.  Below, same general view treeless. Lewis and Clark camped just a quarter mile to the left in this picture on their way west and their way back east.

A Question Of Priorities

This is Sixth and Spruce.   It has looked like this for four years.   Seems to me, if you can build a streetcar in a year, you can tear down an eyesore in less time.   I will now return to my usual happy images.

Up Close Along The Trail

Below, Red Cup Fungus.  Likes to grow on the woodland floor.  Very tiny; smaller than your pinky nail. 
                         Spider was hiding in the thistle bloom awaiting the unsuspecting bee.
