Threshing Machine Canyon&nbsp;is certainly no exception. That&rsquo;s where you can see graffiti from the mid-1800s and walk in a place that has a curious past.&quot; Tue, 28 Aug 2012 07:00:00 GMT http://www.travelks.com/blog/post/2012/28/A-Dirt-Road-Adventure-Threshing-Machine-Canyon/2573/ Wide open spaces http://www.travelks.com/blog/post/2011/1/Wide-open-spaces/560/ An endless horizon that stretches to infinity in every direction. Vast grasslands filled with wildflowers of every color. Historic traces of pioneers’ quest to tame the prairie. Rugged bluffs and stone outcrops that punctuate a rolling prairie. And a crystal blue sky that covers everything like a canopy.

The wood floor, pressed tin ceiling, paintings of early-day Trego County, and shelves filled with glass milk bottles, oil lamps, and washboards create an old-fashioned atmosphere. If the walls in this building constructed as a hardware store in 1925 could talk, they would have stories to tell! &nbsp; Fri, 18 Feb 2011 07:00:00 GMT http://www.travelks.com/blog/post/2011/18/WaKeeney-s-Western-Kansas-Saloon-and-Grill-a-Sure-Bet/147/
