The High Plains of southwest Kansas, bisected by part of the Arkansas River Lowlands, are know for farmland and feedlots. But geologic sites of interest include two large sinkholes, a high outcrop once important to travelers on the Santa Fe Trail's Cimarron Cutoff because it signaled water was nearby, and an area once know for its artesian wells.
