Jul 30, 2017 - Sightseeing in Southwestern Kansas

We spent the weekend seeing what there was to see in Southwestern Kansas. With the help of the official Kansas Tourism web site (www.travelks.com), and a couple of others Explore Rural Kansas (www.getruralkansas.org), and Kansas Travel (www.kansastravel.org) I was able to find places to visit in this part of Kansas. We traveled to Greensburg and Mullinville. We also made a couple of stops in Kinsley where we were staying. Greensburg, you may remember, was the town that was nearly totally destroyed on May 4, 2007 by an EF5 tornado. The...

Hwy 54 took us to Greensburg where we camped at the Kiowa Fishing lake. Tiny little lake north of town with blackbirds singing and blue herons flying around the...

Oct 13, 2007 - Waste Lands to Heartlands with a Tornado for a Twist !

Well, after 3,000 miles and some of the most beautiful country one could imagine, we were looking at another 2,000 miles of windshield time and not expecting to much in the way of scenry. What a surprise. Our travels home would take us from Holbook, AZ over I-40 to Albuquerque, north on I-25 through Santa Fe, and east on a country road for 90 miles to Clayton, NM. From there is was 370 miles of 2 lane road to Wichita, KS. Then to Kansas City, St. Louis, Indy, and home. Our travel out of Holbook lead us through more high desert, red rock...
