Back From A Road Trip
Hello hello….Yes, I’m still here!
Sorry for my silence over the last few days, but Harland and I were away this weekend down in the southwest corner of Kansas, an 8 hour drive for us. We left Saturday afternoon, and drove all day getting into Liberal late that night.
Sunday, we attended the Kansas Sampler Festival, an annual event showcasing the best of what Kansas has to offer in tourism, foods, culture, etc.
And then Monday morning we got up at 4am to go out and watch Lesser Prairie Chickens. We’ve watched Greater Prairie Chickens many times, but have never seen the Lesser variety. Sadly, they spooked and left before it was light enough to take pictures and never came back. We were bummed, but at least we got to watch them for a little while in the pre-dawn light. Click HERE to go to a website about them where you can see pics and listen to their calls.
After we packed up our blinds, I took a few pics of native wildflowers, and then we hit the road.
On the way home we visited a century-old stone bridge over a creek where I got much closer to the muddy bank than I intended. Oh well, not the first time that’s happened. We got home last evening, unpacked, showered and fell into bed.
Soon I’ll share some pics from our travels. Stay tuned.
