the hills are burning
It's spring in the Flint Hills, and that means time to burn the pastures. It's a good thing for the environment as it keeps trees and other unwanted things from growing without the use of toxic chemicals, but it does create quite the layer of smog for a few weeks. The other day on our way home a pasture was burning right next to the road. A bit disconcerting to drive through, but I did get some neat pictures.
