Hot, so hot. My arms and neck look like dried tobacco leaves. To reach Lared, KS (58 miles) required 6 hours and 4 liters of water.
In the photo below the fenceposts are made from limestone. Since there are so few trees in Kansas, the original homesteaders used stone instead of wood, and many of their old fenceposts are still in use 120+ years later, as they last forever.
