Northern Central Prairie Inspires Explorers of All Ages

Clouds floating over the Northern Central Prairie in Kansas

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.

Kansas on Two Wheels: Prairie Trail Scenic Byway

Mother Nature continues to amaze us with her timing.  There have been some absolutely beautiful days, perfect times for wind therapy on the Wide Glide. Ironically, they have been during the work week when cruising a byway isn't really possible due to those day jobs that we need to keep the lights on.

Lindsborg’s Sandzen Gallery Showcases Artistic Diversity

Standing in awe at the unique oil paintings in the Birger Sandzén Memorial Gallery in Lindsborg, I realized the Swedish-born artist's signature use of vivid colors and bold brushwork reminded me of a mural in the Belleville Post Office I'd seen as a child. Gallery Director Larry Griffiths said Sandzén painted murals in post offices in Halstead, Lindsborg and Belleville as part of the Works Progress Administration program in the 1930s. It's no wonder I have grown to love Sandzén's paintings, especially the larger pieces found in the gallery that bears his name.

So much of the Kansas story is about pioneers and the Wild West that a day spent in the middle of Vikings, Nordic traditions and Spanish explorers may come as a surprise, but that’s what you get in Lindsborg.

The history of this town south of Salina IS one of pioneers, farmers and the wheat they brought with them, but it is also about a unique cultural tradition found no where else in the state.

Unusual Sandwich Earns A+ at Lindsborg’s Ol Stuga

School is back in session and one thing I’ve learned is that college towns have some of the best places to eat. My homework revealed the Ol Stuga in Lindsborg was a finalist last November in Good Morning America’s “Best Bites Challenge: College Edition” to find the best college town hangout with great food and a cool atmosphere. One of the reasons for the Ol Stuga’s high marks was the Brent Nelson Sandwich, so my assignment was to give this concoction a taste test.
