We are done with the rolling tumbleweed and blowing grit and sand! The wind is still with us, however. Another surprise for us yesterday, as we drove into Kansas, is that we are not done with the rolling plains. In fact, this part of Kansas has some rather pretty countryside. It does help to have your creeks and rivers filled with water, we have seen some rather lush vegetation in this part of Kansas. Blooming redbud trees are everywhere. We saw quite a few of them where we parked last evening also.
