I know glaciers were in the Atchison area. My biology professor told us they stopped at the northern end of the flint hills. The flint hills are different from about south of 56. They are more rolling plains. It is not an even line. I see scarps west of Eskridge. More up around Tuttle Creek.

canoekaw: I couldn't find any info that indicated glaciers had ever been in this area, but I don't know for sure

I am thinking the way the hills look like they are arranged are called scarps left by the glaciers. The precipitous drop off is what makes them scarps.

The Flint Hills run in a band from 15 to 40 miles wide from the Kansas/Nebraska border in the north to the Kansas/Oklahoma border in the south--a distance of about 200 miles.

Trees grow in the ravines and valleys where more water collects but Kansas will never support a flourishing timber industry.
