The Heartland of Kansas

Western Kansas is full of natural wonders and ancient history! Most people drive right through this area on I-70 and completely miss so many beautiful features! The first that comes to mind are the towering chalk pyramids of Monument Rocks. Just south of that lies Lake Scott State Park, one of the highest rated state parks in the country! The extreme corners of Western Kansas offer beautiful and unique scenery as well. In the northeast, the Arikaree Breaks cut beautiful canyons through the prairie. In the southeast, Cimarron National Grassland offers a unique ecosystem and the spectacular views at Point of Rocks. These are just the tip of the iceberg, as there are tons of wide open spaces to explore in Western Kansas!
