While our little girl was in Iowa, I wanted to pay my sister in McPherson a visit and decided to roll a couple of "places of interest" into the journey.

On our way to visit my sister this time, we stopped there. We learned how the area was shaped and changed over countless centuries. We saw a film that immersed us in "reality" as we watched: The fires burning on the prairie filled the floor ahead of us with smoke, and flashes of lightning came from above. When the wind picked up, we felt it. It was quite an experience!
We had home-made pita bread, tuna salad and other items I took from home for our lunch; how convenient it was to see a picnic area right across the street as we exited the building at straight-up noon.
After our first stop, it wasn't long before we left I-70 and headed south. Next stop, Abilene!
