The first three pics are of Castle Rock, in western Kansas.







The bottom pic sits about 35 miles further west, it is called Monument Rocks or sometimes it is called the Chalk Pyramids both formations sit about twenty miles south of I-70. Castle Rock is south of Quinter, Monument Rocks are south of Oakly.

These two formations are sea bottom that did not erode away when the sea that covered most of the plains receded, if your ever this way well worth a stop and a look!

Just finished watching this:



Centennial was a miniseries in the late 80's that covered the great plains from the early mountain men to about 1980.

And now starting this:



This one seems a little more factual. More of a documentary.

Hurry up spring, I am running out of old movies.

I Must Be Close to Minot

OR someone/something is 20 minutes from having a really bad day.

Out where I live you just don't see a parked ICBM just off the highway. I was a little curious as to who/what coordinates were in the black box-but we shall never know that.

I sure hope these guys/gals never get a bad case of road rage.

It's amazing at what grows in the Plains.

Since I was on a TW200 the "fastest motorcycle" on the face of this planet - there was no way they could catch me.

I was watched by a security guard with a really cool set of Binoculars, body armor, and a really big rifle with an even bigger scope-but they didn't take any action, (they could have walked or drove over to me in less than a minute or waved me to come over-but they didn't)------as I made my get away chugging down the road at 52 mph.

Since I was the only TW200 pulling a trailer-I sure as heck would not have been hard to spot on those long straight roads.

But this was a really novel event for me-AND old hat for the locals.

A great idea for a road sign--If you see a big missile along the side of the road-DRIVE ON NO PICTURES or your coordinates will go into the black box.................

Sorry to hear about your experience-that sure must have been unpleasant.
