With much chill in the air and a newly fallen light snow on the ground I spent the afternoon on a winters day exploring one of the newest and most beautiful National Preserves in America, The Tallgrass Prairie National Preserve nestled in the Flint Hills of Kansas. Among the natural beauty of the lands stands the famous Lower Fox Creek School. Back when school was about learning and not how much money the district would receive this one room schoolhouse has stood to maintain the testament of time.

Note about the images:

Images are formatted according to the original image as captured by the camera typically at 2×3 ratios which means, they are not necessarily formatted for specific monitor sizes, they are saved here in 2 sizes: 1200px (pixels) wide and 1600px wide to help accommodate different size monitors. If you are using a laptop or smaller monitor you may find the 1200px size to fit your display better. For larger monitors the 1600px image is provided. You may first click on the image to enlarge the view and see which size will best fit your display, then close the enlarged view (lower right hand corner of image) and use the posted smaller size you see here to save as your background.

To save as your desktop background simply right click on your size of choice and chose; set as desktop background, image will be saved without borders to your desktop background. Then in your desktop properties chose the best properties to display your image. (Example; center, fit, stretch).
