Lucky Star Casino camping

Canola field


I forgot to mention on yesterday's news we had winds gusting up to 45 mph in Texas and Oklahoma. We were glad it was mostly out of the west and pushing us. The drive into Kansas was on a back road highway 81 and we saw many farm fields. Winter Wheat fields high and green. Everything seemed to be green including leaves on the trees. Also saw a beautiful field of yellow flowers called canola. I spotted the refinery in northern Oklahoma. Kansas turnpike showed us farmland, oil riggers, grazing cattle, and rolling hills We took a back road avoiding Kansas city which was north of Topeka,Kansas. One hour down the road we ran into dark clouds and rain. We decided to spent the night parking overnight at Walmart in Atchison, Kansas.
