Final Images from Kansas

So many images of our visit sit in my mind.
Among the images are of the little red schoolhouse, which sat across the
road from where we once lived.
Towns that are becoming deserted with empty building sitting there.
Grain elevators sitting in the middle of town.
Old limestone buildings.
Old farm implements just sitting there deteriorating.
And the small town of Nicodemus where the first settlement of blacks settled west of the
Mississippi River many years ago and now only has about 9 residence.
Farewell Kansas!

Next week there will be a few peeks of Colorado before the return home.
Happy weekend to you all.
Get out and enjoy the sunshine and the sights.
There is beauty all around you.
