So more huge miles under out wheels today, the leaving of Abiline and venturing out towards the west and Colorado. We had no intention of travelling this far but after investigating Dodge City and Springfield we decided to press on . It’s time for dinner so more later . Kansas is a big state, it has big skies, big grass, grain elevators everywhere and some oil. We met some people who worked in the oil business on the well pipe side. Basically a yard with a small workshop and hundreds of yards of pipe with associated linkages and fittings.
They wondered why we were there but quite happily posed for a photo and proudly told us about Pawnee Rock where cowboys and Indians fought over a rock about 50 feet high. It was the highest natural thing for miles!
