Cave girls, glacial milk water, dignitaries: Blue Rapids had it all for the dedication of the Ice Age Monument. Top to bottom: Professor George Callison, paleontologist and artist, who imagined the monument and brought it to life; Mattie Sanders, one of the elusive cave girls hunting the peripheries of the monument (and slaying a T-Rex); Zoe Sanders, whose spear was a formidable weapon; Skyler Sanders, who carved a petroglyph of the photographer; Zoe Sanders in action; the monument, round like the only round town square in Kansas; the color guard backing Prof. George Callison at his introductory speech; Rex Buchanan, interim director of the Kansas Geological Survey; Becky Blake, director of Kansas Travel and Tourism; Prof Callison with contractors who built the monument—Bailey Construction, Frankfort; and Marcie Penner, director of the Kansas Sampler Foundation.
