US 15: Kansas
Crossing into Kansas I became apprehensive; having seen the Wizard of Oz several times I knew there was danger in this state.
After crossing the Red Hills I dodged Dodge City, as I’ve also seen Tombstone; I know Wyatt Earp’s supposed to have cleaned it up, but you never know!
I reached the Smoky River for lunch, and had some delicious smoked red hot chili peppers under the bridge; I’d earlier picked them in the Red Hills.
I made my way into the Smoky Hills afterwards, and was going to head west, but after seeing a twister approaching in the distance I sussed out that I should head east.
So I changed direction, and an hour later I saw the tornado pass to the east.
The hills were beautiful, and I slept well knowing I’d escaped danger and been able to see some beautiful scenery.
