Banjos and Fiddles and Pickers Oh... and Pie!

With the Faces and Places Tour, I don't just drive the Kansas graphic-wrapped van to and from my destination, but I get to stop and see things along the way.  Fun things.  Amazing things. Places in Kansas I am just now discovering after.... (do I dare say my age?) thirty-nine years of living in Kansas.

Kansas On Two Wheels: Post Rock Scenic Byway

As one travels along Interstate 70 through Kansas, there is a stretch of highway that passes through farm ground fenced in by barbed wire and rock fence posts.  These yellow-white fence posts are all fairly uniform in shape and size.  To some, they may harken back to another time when rock was used to build barns, homes and fences.  To others, they signal the area known as "Post Rock Country".  Settled by Bohemians from Europe, this area is rich in limestone, fertile soil and the history of our Kansas ancestry.

Colorful Garden of Eden Emerges in Lucas

 The Garden of Eden in Lucas has had a facelift. From rosy cheeks on faces to striped clothing to the red, white and blue of our nation’s flag, colors dulled by dirt and mold are once again vivid, returning sculptures at the world-renowned grassroots art site to their former splendor. Artist Samuel Perry Dinsmoor mixed cement with crushed stone to create colors in the fascinating - and what some consider quirky - sculptures he formed from 1907 to 1932 on cement ‘trees’ eight to 40 feet above ground.

In a Kansas state of mind

This is a guest blog post written on June 23 by Andy Brack as he was completing the last leg of a road trip through Kansas with his daughter. A Faces & Places Tour Roadie met the duo as they were eating at Emma Chase Cafe in Cottonwood Falls and loved their story so much, we asked him to share it with you.
