|The Keeper of the Plains by Blackbear Bosin. One of my two favorite Wichita "guys."|
|The Keeper stands at the confluence of the Big and Little Arkansas Rivers.|
And yes, Kansans pronounce it "Ar-Kansas," not "Arkansaw."
|My other favorite Wichita "guy" - the Wichita troll by Constance Ernatt.|
|Back view of the troll. Love the frog on his shoulder. |
Not pictured: his other arm is missing due to vandals. A stick has been wedged into his
shoulder in its place. Sometimes I really dislike people.
|A view along the river. The tall building used to be a Holiday Inn. |
I dare you to watch this terrible made-in-Wichita movie sometime. This building
figures in the finale.
|The swans, geese, and ducks were out in full force.|
