Kansas has the largest population of wild grouse (or prairie chicken as the Americans call it) of any state in America.
Kansas also has the only gallery devoted to people who lost US Presidential elections.
Situated at a bank in the town of Norton, the "They Also Ran" gallery includes 59 drawings and photographs dating back to Thomas Jefferson, who lost to John Adams in 1796.
The most recent addition was John McCain, added in 2009 after he lost to Barack Obama.
The gallery, which is open during bank hours and free, gets about 100 visitors a year.
Three criminal teenagers in Kansas in 2011 had the promising idea of robbing motorists who were stuck in the snow.
Unfortunately they did not think it through properly and were arrested by the police and charged with armed robbery when they got stuck in a snowdrift themselves.
