The Keeper of the Plains area of the river walk in Wichita, KS definitely looks better at night. On a nice summer evening, families were all over the place pushing strollers and chatting with relatives...eating ice cream.... You get the picture.
To make the picture more interesting, I took it from a low angle with a longer exposure (to get that glass like effect on the river). Standing 44 feet atop a large Boulder at the confluence of the Arkansas and Little Arkansas Rivers is the Keeper of the Plains. Designed in 1974 by Comanche-Kiowa artist Blackbear Bosin, the sculpture has since become a symbol of the city of Wichita. At night large fire pits located around the keeper are lit and illuminates the warrior in a fiery blaze. A must stop when in Wichita, similar to Springfield's notorious horseshoes the haystack is a phenomenal calorie packed monster of a dish. Get it with Classique, an excellent saison beer by Stillwater! Lurking below a storm grate near the banks of the Arkansas River lays a foul troll, cringing with an upward gaze at those who pass over. The best time to seek this ugly creature is at night when its subterranean prison glows green. Kansas Sunset.  Had a few hours to walk along the Arkansas river in downtown Wichita, and i unknowingly stumbled upon the Keeper of the Plains. A phenomenal pub in Old Town with a large draft beer selection and good, quality food. The haystack is a must have for those visiting Wichita, an open pattied burger smothered with fries and melted cheese. Of course no museum in the great state of Kansas would be complete without the actual pitchfork prop used by the Scarecrow in the movie The Wizard of Oz. Right on the River downtown. Fascinating Exhibit about Ancient Egypt that contains mummies, sarcophaguses, pottery and other artifacts.
