In the western part of the state, the underlying Great Plains soils have eroded into shallow gullies, adding interest to an otherwise unbroken horizon.
As you move east, you descend gradually to the lower Osage Plains. The eastern Kansas landscape rolls gently along, gathering into low hills in places.
In the central eastern part of the state, the soil is composed of chunks of tough flint and limestone, leftovers from the ancient prairie sea. Because this soil is too rocky to plow, the largest remaining stretch of tall grass prairie, which once blanketed the mid section of the country, has been preserved in this region.
The northeastern corner of the state is hilly and timbered, its uneven surface recalling the passage of the last major glacier. Oak, hickory, and elm take over from the otherwise dominant cottonwood.
The roughest terrain in the state is in the southeast, where oak and hickory stands march toward the Ozarks of Arkansas. Apart from these corners, very little of the state is forested. What trees you see are mostly the cottonwoods that trace the courses of rivers and streams.
Throughout Kansas, game birds abound: quail, pheasants, and prairie chickens dart among the seasonal wild flowers and sunflower patches. Look for members of the rebounding deer population along the cottonwood-lined creeks.
