The campsites and lake were hopping with visitors when we toured the area over Memorial Day and I could tell&nbsp;right away that this would be a great place to spend a long weekend.&nbsp; Fri, 07 Jun 2013 07:00:00 GMT http://www.travelks.com/blog/post/2013/7/Visit-Historical-Scott-Lake-with-its-Picture-Perfect-View/3037/ El Quartelejo: A Visit Through the Ages http://www.travelks.com/blog/post/2013/12/El-Quartelejo-A-Visit-Through-the-Ages/3005/ <img src='http://www.travelks.com/includes/content/images/media/111.jpg'/><br/> I would compare visiting the&nbsp;El Quartelejo Museum&nbsp;in Scott City to time-traveling through Western Kansas. When we arrived at the museum, a replica of a pueblo style building, we were given a brief introduction of the exhibits from Dennie Siegrist, the facility manager. He started us off with the western interior seaway, which occupied this part of the country 100 million years ago. We passed through the Monument Rock display, showing the chalk pyramids attraction which is located just down the road from Scott City.&nbsp; Tue, 12 Feb 2013 07:00:00 GMT http://www.travelks.com/blog/post/2013/12/El-Quartelejo-A-Visit-Through-the-Ages/3005/ Vast Vista's Greet you on the Byway http://www.travelks.com/blog/post/2011/25/Vast-Vista-s-Greet-you-on-the-Byway/543/ Vast is the word that strikes a traveler on the&nbsp;Western Vistas Historic Byway.&nbsp;It is very nearly the only way to describe the open plains that greet you along this 102-mile road in the furthest stretches of western Kansas. A mix of natural archeological, architectural, cultural and historic sites line this first historic byway in the state providing enough variety to guarantee each traveler a unique reward.
