Keeper of the Plains

 A couple Saturdays ago the Flint Hills Writing Project met at the Keeper of the Plains statue in Wichita. I received drone authorization from the FAA to fly a quick mission over the Keeper for a quick picture.  This is due to airspace restrictions in the area.  While I took this photo, another group was shooting a video.  They can be seen in the upper right corner of the picture.

The four areas of the pedestal represent the four elements, earth (upper left) air (upper right), water (lower left), and fire (lower right).  The stones surrounding it represent the 28 days between the full moons.  The seven fire pots near the fire region light up each night for fifteen minutes depending on the weather.
