The pace of change of Miami since its incorporation in 1896 is staggering. The seaside land that once was home to several thousand Tequesta is now congested with roads and millions of people while skyscrapers and artificial lights dominate the landscape.

Most people would not consider north central Kansas? Waconda Lake to be extraordinary. The lake, completed in 1969 by the federal Bureau of Reclamation for flood control, irrigation, and water supply purposes, sits amid a region known?when it is thought of at all?for agriculture and, perhaps to a few, as the home of "The World?s Largest Ball of Twine"... more...
