    A few pics from around Wilson lake, just east of Hays and about seven miles north of I-70.

    Not my video, here is a pretty good drone video of the south west end of Wilson, 9,000 acres, and a little over a hundred miles of shore line, the pics do not do the place justice well worth a visit, great variety of camp sites, and they do have nice cabins for rent, and it is a ten minute drive off of 70.



    We stopped and cooked lunch on Coronado Heights on the way home, man the clouds were awesome that day.

    Thanks Sod Buster. You continue to prove that the Great Plains are not fly-over country.

    Not your Great Plains, but great plains none-the-less!
    Hughenden Muttaburra Road, central Queensland, Australia



    In the 200km between those towns, there is 60 or 70 km which looks like this!

    Cheers

    Kanopolis has about thirty miles of horse trails, and a specialized camp area for horse owners, full hook ups for campers and corals for horses, and trails out of the camp ground, I see license tags from all over the country in this camp ground.

    A look at the area in the story, by horseback.

    Sod Buster- your pics and words prove that there is beauty in those 'flat' plains if you slow down enough to see it. I've been across ND, SD, and NE.... but sad to say too many miles on the Interstates.
    Hurrying to get beyond the plains. Maybe someday.... I will slow down to see...and appreciate...what you've shown so well!!!

    While not having been through Kansas, I can definitely say interstating it thorough northern Nebraska and southern South Dakota is a mistake. Very fond memories of my trips through those areas

    Highways across the plains running east to west take the path of least resistance, that equals boring, cutting back north or south and finding and following the rivers up or down, it's a lot more interesting and usually not far off the main drag.
