Logan via Hays

We went up to Logan, Kansas on Monday, after spending the weekend in Hays. We had a leisurely, enjoyable drive up to Hays, taking back roads most of the way. We were rewarded with some good photo opportunities!

buffalo roam

The first evening we drove to the hill country southwest of Hays for sunset, and had the good fortune to spy some buffalo (American bison) backlit by the setting sun.

The next day went to the Sternberg Museum and took a few photos. A few are shown below and you can view the rest at my Sternberg Museum Flickr set.

fossilized jellyfish

These fossilized jellyfish were simply amazing to look at. There were dozens of them on displayed on a fairly large (2-3 feet square) slab.

And the reason we went to Logan was to help our friends at the Redbarn Studio pack up a traveling exhibition of Lester Raymer artwork that had been on display at the Hansen Museum the past couple of months.

  1. Very nice, but the “fossilized jellyfish” are actually crinoids, an extinct animal related to starfish.

    • The nectic crinoids that you labeled “jellyfish” are now extinct but crinoids still exist in the deep ocean today.
