The Oregon Trail in Kansas
Yes, I live in Missouri and love it but, I am a farm girl from Northwest Kansas, always have been and always will be. So don't tell me Kansas is flat and is just a fly over or drive through state. This post is a little different from my usual decorating or gardening posts. There are so many day trips in every state and any country that are fun and educational, it is sad we don't take advantage of these often free and wonderful places. Besides, it's good to get two of my grandkids off the electronics for awhile and out in the wide open spaces of nature. A beautiful warm day in February also helps. We were in for a great experience turning off the highway at that brown historical sign on Highway 24 between Manhattan and Topeka, Kansas.
The coal plant is in the distance with a pile of coal and railroad cars on either side.
