Heading south from WaKeeney, U.S. Route 283 appears to be drawn with a straightedge. What's missing from this map view are all the undulating highs and lows of this west-central prairie. The Smoky Valley Scenic Byway leads visitors through the Smoky Hill River Valley and its mixed grass Kansas prairie. The byway surroundings change with the seasons, sprinkled with native wildflowers, the deep browns of the milo seed pods, and the vivid greens of winter wheat.
