In Grove County Kansas stands the monument rocks. These limestone formations, originally formed 80 million years ago, stretch to 70 feet in height. Kansas, USA

(And here a lot of people thought Kansas was flat!)
Why these are called the pyramids is because it was the family name who used to own the land that these great rocks stand.

Do note that these rocks are sitting on private property, if you would like to see them, please check to make sure the new owners are letting people still come see them.

Northeast corner of Kansas, USA

    That is a really great shot! Sounds like such a serene and quiet place…! Would love to be there right about now…!

  • there is nothing around these except for cows and flat land all around! It really was just nice to sit and relax. Just in the summer you have to watch out for rattle snakes

    Great find and capture .. what a pity they are on private land … they look like they should be a public landmark :)

  • My thoughts as well. They are letting us go see them but they can change their minds at any time, which is sad.
