Inner Peace Outside of Elkhart

When I set off on the Faces & Places tour to the Morton County Fair, I felt the welcome thrill of unknown territory. Okay, so I was traveling on highways through Kansas.  But I was going out there. My uncle warned me, "Keep an eye on the gas gage. Don't want to get stuck between stations." We were headed to the High Plains. My kids automatically packed their red bandanas. I threw some extra sandwiches into the cooler. This was serious.

#KansasBeautiful Five hours through Kansas to the Tumbleweed Festival

A Faces & Places Roadie Blog

We recently set out towards Garden City and I've realized this is one of my favorite drives going from Northeast to Southwestern Kansas. Traveling along I-70 I love to experience the rolling Flint and Smoky Hills regions. One of these days when there is more time, I plan to exit the Interstate and travel through the byways but for now, I will enjoy them in my rush to get from point A to point B.

A Rugged Treasure Hidden in Southwestern Kansas

One of the hidden treasures of Kansas is a very scenic county fishing lake called Clark County Lake. It is located 10 miles south of Kingsdown or 20 miles southeast of Dodge City. That 10 mile road goes through basically flat Kansas crop land. Then, like magic, before our eyes is this absolutely amazing multicolored rocky canyon with a deep blue sparkling lake at the bottom. It’s hard to believe it is Kansas.

Despite living in Kansas all my life, I haven’t traveled to many cities in the West so I didn’t exactly know what I was in for on my Faces & Places Tour trip to Garden City and the Beef Empire Days Rodeo.

My friend Jessica and I planned ahead by looking through our Kansas Visitors Guide. We wanted to enjoy everything about southwestern Kansas. We started with a pit stop in Great Bend for a tasty meal at Diane’s Diner and a little shopping downtown. On the road again, we enjoyed our view of beautiful wheat fields being harvested.

A Modern Day Visit to the Old West

Texans know a thing or two about the old west, but when writer Matt Pryor visited Dodge City he wrote, “Dodge put the wild in Wild West.” He wandered the red brick streets to get a feel of the history, but had the good sense to take advantage of some modern conveniences, too.

Taming Cowboys, but Keeping it a Bit Wild

If you really want to experience a piece of Kansas, go to a Rodeo. The sport is unique because it has its roots in real work required of cowboys on the job. It gives you a taste of our history ...
