Where in Kansas is...?



Over the border we go back
to Kansas. We are on the hunt
for M. Down the road we will
go to "The Little Apple" or
Manhattan, Kansas.

Located in the northwestern
part of the state at the junction
of the Kansas and Big Blue Rivers
in the Flint Hills region. The Flint
Hills are continious rolling hills
with tall grass. Visitors will find
the Flint Hills Discovery Center.

The city was founded by the New
England Emigrant Aid Company.

Best known as the home to
Kansas State University.

One of the things Kansas
is known for is tornados.
Manhattan lies in "Torndao
Alley." The last tornado was
in 2008. Lots of damage,
especially to K-State but no
loss of life.

On a personal note. If you ever
have the oppotunity to visit the
Flint Hills DO IT! It is a beautiful
and peaceful area. We went to the
hills on a summer day several years
ago to hear the Kansas City Symphony
play. What an awewome experience!


Tomorrow will be N in Missouri.

  2. Thanks for introducing me to Manhattan. It sounds like a great place. Tornadoes have been severe in Kansas and Missouri both. I hope this spring we won't have any bad ones. Twyla

    1. Your welcome.
      I am not a fan of tornados,
      so I am right there with you.
