Central Kansas from 30,000 Feet

Satellite view of Central KansasCheck out my old summer stomping ground of Central Kansas from 30,000 feet (it’s probably much higher than that, but it sounds good).

Head over to Flickr for the narrated journey (If you roll over the photo in Flickr little boxes will appear on the photo. Each box has a description.), an idea I stole from blogan (who gives helpful how-to instructions–it’s really easy).

This is all thanks to the satellite imagery from Google Maps. Put in your address and then switch to satellite view. Pretty cool, huh? (And yes, it is Friday) If you zoom straight in from the U.S. view you can go four or five clicks and you’ll see Great Bend, Kansas to the left. Drag it back into view and keep zooming to get this view. (or just type in Great Bend, Kansas)

  1. I wish I could take credit for the idea; it’s so cool. But I can’t. There’s a memorymap group on Flickr you can join and then submit your memory maps to.

    Or go to Flickr and search for “memorymap.” There are tons of them.

  2. Ahhhh Kansas. :) I grew up east of there in Hutchinson. I miss the flat-land. :) (Some people don’t I know.)
