The First of April and a short trip to the Flint Hills in and around Paxico, Kansas was warm, but the Flint Hills still lingered on
with that coat of Winter as the lack of moisture seemed to prolong the renewal of the landscape.  Paxico was busy as usual as this is a hot spot
just north of Interstate 70 for those who love antiques and lots of retro 50's memorabilia.

Shelby patiently awaited in the Jeep while we stopped off at the The Electric Cat Cafe to listen to Max Yoho give a
interesting presentation about bootlegging in southeast Kansas and read some excerpts from his novel 
The Moon Butter Route






I've mentioned this before, that Spring in the Kansas Flint Hills is a good view of why this area is primarily
cattle grazing in the Summer, as it soon becomes apparent that beneath these blue stem grasses that adorn the hill sides there
are rocky slopes and lots of stones.

This was Shelby's first trip to the Flint HIlls and she didn't waste anytime exploring  the slopes.

Garage door peek for Shelby - this is at home where she doesn't miss the opportunity to keep an eye on that Jeep
 in the driveway that just may be headed for the Flint Hills.
