I only drove about 100 miles today, but took all day to do it. In the morning I went to the wonderful Dyck Arboretum in Hesston, Kansas. Here’s a pano of the lawn that surrounds the pond in the gardens. There is a great variety of prairie flowers and wetlands at the arboretum. I spent a while trying to get a picture of some stripey dragonflies near the creek, but they move too fast.
On the way from Hesston to Strong City, I got a little lost in Newton while looking for the turn to Route 50, and had to stop to ask for directions. I stopped to see the Cedar Point Dam Mill and the Clements Stone Arch Bridge but didn’t take any pictures.
After getting settled in at the charming Prairie Fire Inn, I drove down to Cottonwood Falls for dinner. There’s a wonderful little restaurant here called the Emma Chase Cafe. Since I was here on a Wednesday, I missed the weekly music jam, but I did stock up on some jelly for gifts for my mom and cousins.
