What you've been doing

As we were driving we kept admiring the huge fields of sunflowers. They are so beautiful - bright yellow against the blue sky. I tried taking pictures from the truck as we were driving but they did not come out. After seeing the bit of railroad history we realized we were not too far from a sunflower farm. We finally got some wonderful photos of the flowers.

We also saw a crop duster come in for a dusting over a corn field. At first I honestly thought he was about to crash. The angle of attack was incredible as he was coming down over the field. But he straightened out in a split second and must have been a foot or two above the corn. We could have watched him all day as it was like our own personal air show.

I think Kansas tends to get overlooked as a place to visit - but we really enjoyed the beautiful scenery and the cheery people.
