Road Trip – Strong City, KS to Harrisonville, MO

I got kind of a late start today and stopped by the Tallgrass Prairie National Preserve, which is an old ranch with a wonderfull stone mansion and barns. The interesting part about the preserve is its acres and acres of prairie. I managed to get this photo of harvested hay across the street from the preserve before it started raining.

I discovered that I left the rain covers for my camera bag and camera back in Phoenix, so I tried to make do with grocery bags. There was steady light rain so I stayed in the barn to get a few pictures of the prairie. I took a tour of the mansion instead of exploring the prairie.

I’m staying in Harrisonville, a small town south of Kansas City. Tomorrow I’ll go to Powell Gardens. I didn’t go very far today. I had planned to spend more time at the preserve.
