    Nancy,
    Instead of I-70, drop several miles south and follow K-4 or US 96.

    Alex, we've gone west on 96 to Colorado and yes it is a nice drive.

    Travis, you definately need to head up to Maxwell for a visit. They have a couple of yearly events that are worth taking in. One coming up soon is their "Prairie Days" which is held the first weekend in June. When we visited they had demonstrations of powder gun shooting, tanning hides, etc. I've attached a photo I took of one of the reenactors. We've taken a tour out into the buffalo herd. At this time of year they have several calves in the herd. Also I've found lots of wildflowers and they have a nice small lake for camping and fishing.
    They have another "Mountain Man Festival in October, and then in November they have a round-up and sale of some of the buffalo. I haven't been to that but I think it would be fun to photograph.

    As a Sedgwick County refugee and WSU grad, I agree.

    Of course, one still must pass through on the way to Colorado or to visit family and friends. I suggest going native and wearing a sweat-stained to off-white t-shirt one size too small and a stinky John Deere hat.

    Unless your commited to snoose streaks on the side of the car from spitting out the window at 70mph, your still going to be spotted a mile off.
