This is just a few pictures of my week. We went to the Konza Prairie over by Manhattan and walked a few miles of the "miles and miles of miles and miles". I fall in love with the prairie more each time I go there. The wildflowers were almost between blooms this time. You could see a lot of flowers getting ready to bloom but not very many right now.
As a kid when we went on Vacation in Arkansas we would catch the horned toad or "Horney Toad" by the dozen. It was strange to see one this far north. Kind of like the Armadillo is not found here but every once in a while one ventures this far north. There were two girls from K-State sitting by the path and looking at the toad. We talked a while and then moved on. Sure wish we had some kind of a camp stool along the way.
While we were driving to go riding on the Shunga, a car was in front of us. We could not see who was driving. That person must have been really short. Barb has a seat cushion to raise her up so she can see well. Oh well...
The last picture is me riding down the Shunga Trail near Topeka. We like to see something different from time to time. We parked over near the Brown vs Board of Education site and rode about five miles. So long as we were moving it was great. Stop moving and the heat and humidity made it sticky. In the shady areas it was pretty nice but there are a few stretches with no shade. Notice the bike helmet sans aluminum foil. Wonder where that smile went.
