Wichita, Kansas

The "Keeper of the Plains" is a 44-foot Cor-Ten
sculpture by Kiowa-Commanche artist, Blackbear Bosin.

The sculpture stands at the confluence of the
Arkansas and the Little Arkansas Rivers in
Wichita, Kansas.
During our visit in Wichita we spent some time hiking
in the Lake Afton Park south of Goddard, Kansas,
where we found these beautiful flowers known as
Wine Cup or Poppy Mallow.
