Continuing on the back country roads we crossed over into Kansas. Both Todd and I have already been in this state, but we've never seen this area of the state. There are lots of rolling tumble weeds and they get caught in the roadside fencing.
If land isn't designated for crops, then it is for cattle. Along the route we saw many large cattle farms with many hundreds, up to thousands of head of cows in pens. And I think we all know what future ...
... was very interesting to see the history of Cowboys and Indians. We then wandered the small city seeing a few statues before looking for some lunch. We had exhausted just about everything in the city so we headed back to the hotel to do washing after managing to put it off for two weeks.

In fact, many roads in the US run east-west (with even numbers) or north-south (odd numbers) so when moving say northwest you have to zigzag between those two options...
