Central Kansas: Exploring Marquette

The volunteer who told us all the wonderful stories at the Kansas Motorcycle Museum suggested that we check out some other places in town after leaving the museum. One place he suggested was the Smoky Valley Distillery, it was past five though and we were unable to visit but it is on the list for

Central Kansas: Kansas Motorcycle Museum

I will admit up front that I’m not a big motorcycle fan. I think it in part stems from having questionable coordination and having fears of crashing. On the other hand Keltin enjoys them and hopes to his license one day. On the way back from Mushroom Rock State Park we stopped by the Kansas

Colorado: Two Buttes

A morning trip out to Two Buttes is the last side trip that we took from Kansas. Two Buttes is weird because if you Google it you will get the name of a small town but there is also a small mountain in the area that sits on the open plain with only flat land
