Prior to our trip, I made arrangements with Ruth Ann at Greensburg GreenTown for a tour. I was curious about the transformation of the community after it was nearly completely leveled by an EF5 tornado in 2007.  Tue, 16 Dec 2014 07:00:00 GMT http://www.travelks.com/blog/post/2014/16/Western-High-Plains-South-Puts-Modern-Twist-on-Cowtown-Charm/3111/ Northern Central Prairie Inspires Explorers of All Ages http://www.travelks.com/blog/post/2014/19/Northern-Central-Prairie-Inspires-Explorers-of-All-Ages/3105/ Looking for a road trip that inspires inquisitive minds of all ages? Before we even returned home from our Yellow Brick Road Trip through the Southern Central Prairie, my son Charlie was sketching “machines” of gears and springs, my son Lucas was beginning a rock collection, and I was planning an art project involving my favorite (broken) coffee mugs.

Despite the loss and devastation, the city persevered to rebuild—but rebuild a new and environmentally friendly city.

Even as we started out, it was clear to me, you can live in Kansas your whole life and not see all of it. Every time I go somewhere for work I’m just amazed at the things I find.
