We left home on Tuesday the 22nd of November and spent the better part of the next two days driving to Denton, TX to visit our daughter and son-in-law who live there. My husband mostly drove; I mostly knitted and read. I have never had a good attitude about Kansas. I pretty much thought of it as a huge, flat land to get through on the way to something more interesting. This trip cured me of that.
Yes, it is pretty much flat, but...
After I read the sign (first photo), the more I thought about it, the more I was in awe of this amazing, vast and productive land that can feed so many cattle. It was like the Askrigg Common in North Yorkshire, on steroids. Every summer, a million head of cattle graze here on four and a half million acres! It is huge!
Some summer, I want to go there just to see the amazing sight of all those cattle...
and then come right back to Wisconsin where it will be a lot cooler!
