More flat terrain greeted me as I left Limon Colorado. It was so flat that I could almost see South Dakota to the north, Missouri to the east and Texas to the south.
I lost an hour as I crossed into Kansas and entered the Central Time Zone. I rode for several hours before stopping in Hays, Kansas for gas and something to eat. At the gas station, I noticed the Ramada Inn, next to it, advertising $49.99/ room/night, so I decided to stay there. I only have a 3 hour ride left to get to Wichita and the weather prediction for tomorrow is warm and sunny.
In viewing the vast crop fields along the highway, they are green but the stunted crop growth would suggest that they could use some water. I haven’t seen many trees in Kansas, just miles of field crops.
Wednesday, I will be going to Wichita to attend a meeting on Thursday, before heading home.
