|Tonight we are in Dodge City, Kansas. We don't see thousands of longhorn cattle being driven by cowboys up from Texas. Nor have we encountered any outlaws toting six-shooters. We did have an easy trip across the center of the state as it is so flat! I thought parts of Iowa was flat, but Kansas seems to be even more so. I particularly noted that there were few river valleys or creeks to cross, we simply kept going west through corn, wheat and ?sorghum? fields. (There is a 3 foot plant with wide leaves like corn, but then with a very large tassle on top). We bypassed the Worlds of Fun amusement park in Kansas City (although there was a brief moment of lobbying for a side trip). We also missed the underground Salt Dome tour near Hutchinson. We did stop briefly in the middle of the US at Kinsley, KS (please see the photo). I found driving quite enjoyable today as Highway 50 was one of the smoothest surfaces for traveling we have yet encountered (not as much heavy truck traffic as I-80 to chew up the road). The weather is pleasantly cool with highs in the low 80's and lows at night down into the low 60s.
